Broadband Frequency Characterization of Optical Receivers Using Intensity Noise
Methods for enhancing the dynamic range of the intensity noise technique for high-frequency photoreceiver calibration are proposed and experimentally demonstrated. These methods combine recently developed EDFA* technology with spectral filtering techniques. The intensity noise calibration technique is portable, easy to use, and field deployable.
