We propose a new hybrid integrated optical front-end module for a 100-Gb/s-class coherent receiver using silica-based planar lightwave circuit (PLC) technology. We have developed an integrated structure composed of multichannel microcollimator optics between PLC waveguides and photodiodes (PDs), and compact hermetically sealed optical-to-electrical converters with a PD array and a transimpedance amplifier array to maintain reliability. We used the technology to fabricate an all-in-one optical front-end module for a dual polarization quadrature phase-shift-keying (DP-QPSK) coherent receiver, and confirmed that the module operated successfully for 112-Gb/s DP-QPSK signal detection.
