The effect of decision-time jitter on the performance of optical communication systems is evaluated theoretically. The jitter-induced noise and the associated power penalty are calculated for the uniform and Gaussian distributions of the time jitter. The results suggest that the time jitter should be ¿(4B)¿1 to keep the power penalty below 1 dB for a light-wave system operating at a bit rate B.
