Recent advances in coherent receiver design applied to high speed (40Gbps and 100Gbps) core optical communications networks will be presented, along with a brief historical overview.? Specific modulation formats, combined with coherent detection and digital signal processing, will be shown to meet the requirements of modern optical communications networks.? One such format receiving considerable attention is coherent polarization-multiplexed quaternary phase-shift keying (PM-QPSK).? The theory of operation of PM-QPSK employing a polarization-diversity coherent receiver with digital finite-impulse-response equalizer and carrier phase estimation will be explained and the performance of state of the art R&D efforts will be discussed.? Finally, we will review the importance of photonics integration in making mass production coherent products a reality.
