Abstract

A theoretical analysis of two simple implementations for optical receivers that achieve near-quantum optimum performance for phase-quadrature coherent-state signaling is carried out. For a large received average photon count per symbol, Ns, the error probability is proportional to exp(−2Ns) as opposed to the conventional heterodyne performance of exp(−Ns/2).
