Sensitivity of an Optical Receiver

The interface between an optical signal input and the detected electronc signal output is an essential part of an optical data link. It is a simplified block diagram of an optical receiver, where the first two stages—the photodiode detector and the transimpedance amplifier—determine overall sensitivity. This is the same process as in an RF/microwave receiver front end, but is described using different terminology.
