A general analysis of the combined effects of an arbitrary nonlinearity followed by a coherent detector and an envelope detector on SNR is performed. Our analysis leads to the expression of the improvement factor which is applicable to noise with an arbitrary amplitude distribution. It is found that output SNR can be improved by combining these two detectors appropriately.
