Abstract
Performance measurements are reported of a coherent homodyne optical communication receiver that contained an iron doped indium phosphide photorefractive beam combiner, rather than a conventional optical beam splitter. The system attained a bit error probability of 10 exp -6 at received signal powers corresponding to less than 100 detected photons per bit. The system used phase modulated Nd:YAG laser light at a wavelength of 1.06 micron.
