Abstract
Recently much interest has been shown in the design of very low noise tuned front-end optical receivers for use in Lightwave Sub-carrier Multiplex Systems as well as Coherent Lightwave Systems. This paper looks at the requirements that need to be considered to enable the accurate design of such tuned front-end optical receivers. Simplified design expressions are presented for a number of tuning configurations and theoretical results as well as practical measured results are presented for one of the designs. The design was realized at GaAs MMICs using the GEC/Marconi F20 foundry process.
