A technique is presented for evaluating the probability of error for an optically preamplified receiver with a fiber Fabry-Perot optical filter of arbitrary bandwidth between the preamplifier and photodiode. The technique permits simultaneous consideration of the distortion due to modulator chirp and fiber dispersion, the optical filter and the baseband electrical filter. The optical filter is characterized by a Lorentzian passband response, and the quadrature noise processes due to the amplified spontaneous emission are represented by Karhunen-Loeve expansions. For an arbitrary optical filter bandwidth, the evaluation of the probability of error depends explicitly on the details of the Karhunen-Loeve expansion. The solution procedure is general and consequently can, in principle, be applied to other filter passband responses. The influence of the bandwidths of the optical and electrical filters on the performance of a 10 Gb/s system is assessed
