10/10/13 20130266308  Coherent optical receiver, device and method for detecting interlane skew in coherent optical receiver The disclosed coherent optical receiver includes a local light source; a 90degree hybrid circuit; an optoelectronic converter; an analogtodigital converter; a skew addition unit; and a fft operation unit. The 90degree hybrid circuit makes multiplexed signal light interfere with local light from the local light source, and outputs multiple optical signals separated into a plurality of signal components.
