The optical feedback (OFB) receiver can offer considerably better sensitivity than resistive feedback designs. Such receivers could find important application in multibranched or spectrally sliced local access networks where high optical losses may be encountered: However, an additional feature of these networks is that the system elements (transmitter, receiver etc) must be cost effective in high volume production. This paper will demonstrate an OFB receiver with the highest reported sensitivity of -64.0 dBm at 2.048Mb/s without the need for high quality optoelectronic and electronic components.
