Abstract
Photon-counting is known to be the practically most efficient means for detection of free-space optical communications. Data rates will always be limited, however, by the speed at which such devices can operate. We calculate here the performance one can expect as one demands speeds so fast that device-limiting timing jitter substantially corrupts the measurements.
