Cutoff rate of m-ary PPM is derived for an avalanche photodiode (APD) based receiver. The cutoff rate is compared among m=8-256 under the condition of the same total signal energy in 256 slots, where the effects of the timing jitter and atmospheric turbulence are included. Numerical results are shown for the illustrative examples of the cutoff rate.
