Single Photodiode-per-Polarization Receiver for 400G Systems
Paper in proceedings, 2018

We present a simplified heterodyne receiver using one single ended photodiode per polarization for polarization multiplexed coherent signals. We demonstrate this receiver for the reception of PM-16QAM over field-installed metro-area fibers at distances up to 306-km.
