Abstract
The Saraswati Coherent Optical REceiver (SCORE) utilizes an a very innovative approach to achieve record receiver sensitivity for high bandwidth optical communications. The SCORE approach supports 10-100 Gb/s communicaton on a single wavelength. SCORE can utilize dense wavelength division multiplexing to achieve well over 1 terabit per second aggregate communication. SCORE utilizes mature component technology with most components having lifetimes well over 1 million hours. Key components have started the radiation characterization process demonstrating promising results.
