100 Gbps DP-QPSK System with Digital Signal Processing

The combination of polarization-multiplexing and quadrature phase-shift-keying (PM-QPSK or DP-QPSK) is emerging as one the most promising solutions to reach bit rates of 100 Gbps and higher.

Optical Coherent Receiver Sensitivity Analysis

Optical coherent receiver technology can provide theoretical sensitivity levels to the order of 10’s of photons/bit. This application note provides an overview of common coherent receiver architectures…


BER Analysis of BPSK with RS Encoding

Demonstrates how to perform bit error rate (BER) testing for a binary phase-shift keyed (BPSK) optical system with Reed Solomon (RS) encoders and decoders.


LIDAR Systems Design

OptiSystem is an excellent tool for designing prototype designs of communications and sensor systems. The following application note demonstrates how OptiSystem can be used to design and simulate realistic models for light detection and ranging systems (LIDAR).


SER & BER Analysis of QAM-PSK-PAM Systems

Demonstrates how to perform symbol error rate (SER) or bit error rate (BER) testing for higher order modulation systems.


Photodiode Sensitivity Modelling

One of the main working parts of any optical receiver is the photodetector (which converts optical power to an electric current). Either a PIN or APD (avalanche photodiode) photodetector can be used depending on the system performance objectives.


Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG) Systems Design

Fiber optic gyroscopes, using the Sagnac effect, can rapidly and accurately sense changes in orientation (angular velocity) from interferometric measurements. Two open loop detection techniques, DC and phase modulation, are demonstrated using OptiSystem.
