In this paper, we review first, the different noise terms involved in amplified and filtered spontaneous emission detection using the standard beating theory (or the semi-classical field expansion theory) of the noise in optical amplifiers. We derive BER calculations using the following approaches: 1) non-ideal electrical and optical filters combined with a Gaussian approximation for the resultant noise process and an ideal integrate and dump electrical filter and an ASE source combined with non-Gaussian Erlang noise statistics.
