Paper Abstract

Coherent lightwave communication systems have been shown to offer a 5-20 db improvement in performance compared to conventional direct detection schemes. This results in increased receiver sensitivity as well as selectivity. Aspects pertaining to receiver modeling for coherent lightwave communication systems are studied using the bit error rate (BER) and receiver sensitivity as figures of merit.
