The performance of M-ary PSK coded systems in the presence of AWGN with a noisy carrier reference in the receiver is examined. The results are obtained by combining the Chernoff bound technique with the generating function approach. The bit error probability analysis is carried out for 8 and 16-PSK with code rates 2/3 and 3/4, respectively. The numerical results obtained clearly demonstrate the error performance degradation due to a Tikhonov phase noise process with parameter α.
