Abstract

Conditional pulse nulling (CPN) receiver is proposed by Dolinar to discriminate pulse position modulation (PPM) signals. The receiver using a beam splitter and an on-off photon detector can outperform the standard quantum limit (SQL) for PPM signals. In this paper, we apply this receiver to multi-pulse PPM (MPPM) and binary quantum coding signals, and use dynamic programming algorithm to optimize the control strategy. The MPPM signals is used to improve the band-utilization efficiency, and the binary quantum coding make the communication able to correct the error. Numerical simulation results show that the CPN receiver with optimized strategy can also outperform SQL for both MPPM and binary quantum coding signals.
