Paper Abstract

Computer simulation of coherent optical systems is described. Simulation models of a PSK heterodyne coherent optical receiver including both laser phase noise and shot noise are developed and a semi-analytical approach for the estimation of low Bit Error Rates (BER) (<10-9) is described. The developed models and the semi-analytical BER estimation approach are successfully applied to the examination of IF filtering effects on the BER performance. Linewidth requirements for various IF filters are also estimated and compared with the literature.
