Paper Abstract

565 Mbit/s DPSK optical transmission experiments with a balanced phase diversity receiver are reported. The receiver was realized employing two different optical 90° hybrids, an integrated optics hybrid on LiNb03 and a compact bulk optical hybrid. A silicon bipolar multiplier IC was used in the demodulator and in the AFC-stage of the receiver. Long term stability at a BER of 10-9 with a receiver sensitivity of -48.5 dBm was obtained.
