The performance of an optical ASK receiver is analysed with the consideration of optical channel noise. Three noises are considered: the LO-channel noise, the signal-channel noise, and the shot noise. Their statistical properties and spectral distributions are investigated. Using correlation functions and a conditional probability scheme, the authors prove that the noises are independent Gaussian distributions. Through spectral analysis, the effect of optical filter bandwidth on the receiver performance degrades if a wide bandwidth optical filter is employed. The results show that systems with little laser phase noise are subject to degradation by optical channel noise than those with larger phase noise
