Abstract
This paper presents a theoretical analysis of a series tuned optical receiver front-end design based on a PIN diode and MESFETs/HEMTs for wide-band multichannel lightwave transmission systems. A simple circuit model of this series tuned optical receiver front-end is presented and the method followed in this paper uses basic circuit theory to derive analytical expressions in terms of the elements of an equivalent circuit for characterizing the front-end. This paper computes the transimpedance, equivalent input noise current density and peaking frequency of the front-end from known physical parameters of the commercially available photodiodes and GaAs MESFET/HEMT, InP HEMT. Low noise is achieved for an appropriate choice of device parameters. The results obtained from the analysis presented in this paper are used in calculating power penalty and number of channels at various bitrates to optimize the performance of a multichannel excess shot noise limited coherent optical communication system.
