Unformatted text preview: Dr. Joseph C. Palais 10.6 1 THE FIBER FORUM Fiber Optic Communications Dr. JOSEPH C. PALAIS PRESENTED BY Dr. Joseph C. Palais 10.6 2 Section 10.6 Optic Heterodyne Receivers Dr. Joseph C. Palais 10.6 3 10.6.1 Heterodyne Detection (Coherent Detection) Consider the electric field of an optical wave traveling in the z-direction: E SIG = E S (t) cos[ C t - kz + (t) ] C = optical frequency = 2 f = (2 /T ) T ~ 10-14 seconds = phase of the wave For intensity modulation, E S varies with time. We will only consider angle modulation and On-Off Keying (OOK) digital signals. Dr. Joseph C. Palais 10.6 4 For optical angle modulation (FM or phase modulation), varies with time. Consider the field at z = 0 (i.e. the detector is located at z = 0) Then E SIG = E S (t) cos[ C t + (t) ] (10-30) The instantaneous intensity is I = = cos 2 [ C t + (t)] I = [ /2 ][ 1 + cos( C t + 2 29 ] 2 SIG E 2 ( ) S E t 2 ( ) S E t Dr. Joseph C. Palais 10.6 5 The average intensity (averaged over many optical cycles) is: ( 29 ( 29 2 1 1 cos 2 2 2 s c E t I t dt < = + + where the averaging time obeys >> T Ex. T = 10-14 s, = 10-10 s. The detectors integration time is . It is still short compared to variations in E S (t) and (t). Dr. Joseph C. Palais 10.6 6 Thus, E S (t) and (t) are (nearly) constant over the integration time . Example showing the relationship between the integration time and variations in the square of the field amplitude....
