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 (including homodyne, heterodyne and differential detection) and compares BER waterfall sensitivity curve simulations with theoretical results.
