Outlines the requirements of pulse shaping networks for digital optical receivers and an optimisation strategy (modified Chernoff bound) that has been successfully employed to design these filters for low bit-rate systems. A technology and associated design technique that can be used to extend the design process to systems operating at state-of-the-art bit-rates is outlined. The results presented clearly establish the suitability of the technology and design process for the realisation of pulse-shaping filter structures to meet the exacting requirements of evolving very high bit-rate optical systems.
