Hence, this diode current i containing all these frequency terms is passed through a low-pass filter which allows to pass the frequencies below or up to modulating frequency ωm and rejects the other higher frequency components. Thus, the modulating or baseband signal dispensary midland mi with frequency ωm is recovered from the input modulated signal. The anode 6 of diode Dlis connected directly tothe input of an operational amplifier 7. Asillustrated, this may be a differential amplifier, with the diode being connectedto the minusinputterminal 9.

Across the diode there is a voltage VIF.Hef(ω) available which is the input voltage of the emitter-follower multiplied by the transfer function of the emitter-follower. It is an object of the invention to provide a wideband square-law detector whose output voltage plotted against frequency shows a uniform pattern if a signal having a spectrum as shown in Fig. 1a is applied to the input of the detector.
The square law detector circuit is used for demodulating modulated signal of small amplitude (i.e., below 1 V) so that the operating region may be restricted to the nonlinear portion of the V-I characteristics of the device. A treatment of the incoherent sequential detection of a sinewave in Gaussian noise by a biased square-law receiver. The average number of pulses that might be integrated in each beam position and the resulting false-alarm probability are calculated.
For obtaining a baseband signal whose amplitude is proportional to the amplitude of the received light signal and irrespective of the direction of polarization thereof, the two baseband signals are to be squared and then added together according to known vector properties. In lieu of squaring the obtained baseband signals, the desired output signal may also be obtained by utilizing a demodulator that has a square-law relationship between the amplitude of the input signal and the amplitude of the output signal. Bias resistor R1 is chosen in conjunction with the negative power supply voltage to provide a forward dc bias current through diode D1 at which the most optimum square-law relation occurs. Bias resistor R2 is chosen in conjunction with the positive power supply voltageto provide the desired dc operating point at the output of the operational amplifier 7. I, this is a conventionaldetector for providing video pulses 1 from bursts of IF.
