We numerically demonstrate colorless reception of dense wavelength division multiplexed channels in the C-band for high-order QAM (16-64 QAM) signals on a 120° monolithically integrated downconverter, based on a 2x3 MMI with calibrated analog IQ recovery. It is shown that the proposed calibrated 120° downconverter can increase up to 80 the number of(More)
A coherent receiver based on a 120° downconverter architecture, inherited from previous approaches at the microwave and optical fields, is proposed, analyzed, numerically evaluated and compared to the conventional 90° downconverter alternative. It is shown that, due to its superior calibration procedure, the new downconverter architecture allows full(More)
Conventional monolithically integrated 90° downconverter suffers from hardware-induced non-linear constellation distortion, which gets worse far away from the central wavelength or when fabrication errors are taken into account. To overcome these problems, a 120° monolithically integrated downconverter with full compensation of hardware non-idealities has(More)
Conventional dual-polarization coherent receivers require polarization beam splitters for either the signal or the local oscillator path. This severely hinders monolithic integration, since integrated polarization splitting devices often exhibit stringent fabrication tolerances. Here we propose a dual-polarization monolithically integrated coherent receiver(More)
The implementation agreement of the Optical Internet Forum for a dual polarization (DP) I/Q downconverter defines strict requirements for the phase diversity network, resulting in a negligible penalty, but does not specify the extinction ratio (ER) of the polarization beam splitters (PBS) on which the polarization diversity network is based. We propose a(More)
