The interest for short-reach links of the kind needed for inter-data-center communications has fueled in recent years the search for transmission schemes that are simultaneously highly performing and cost effective. In this work we propose a direct-detection coherent receiver that combines the advantages of coherent transmission and the costeffectiveness of direct detection. The working principle of the proposed receiver is based on the famous Kramers-Kronig (KK) relations,and its implementation requires transmitting a continuous-wave signal at one edge of the information-carrying signal spectrum. The KK receiver scheme allows digital postcompensation of linear propagation impairments and,as compared to other existing solutions,is more efficient in terms of spectral occupancy and energy consumption.

Abstract

The interest for short-reach links of the kind needed for inter-data-center communications has fueled in recent years the search for transmission schemes that are simultaneously highly performing and cost effective. In this work we propose a direct-detection coherent receiver that combines the advantages of coherent transmission and the costeffectiveness of direct detection. The working principle of the proposed receiver is based on the famous Kramers-Kronig (KK) relations,and its implementation requires transmitting a continuous-wave signal at one edge of the information-carrying signal spectrum. The KK receiver scheme allows digital postcompensation of linear propagation impairments and,as compared to other existing solutions,is more efficient in terms of spectral occupancy and energy consumption.
