Paper Abstract

The potential advantages of applying coherent optical fiber techniques to broadband networks are reviewed, and a number of system types are described to illustrate the operating principles. Particular consideration is given to networks that rely on the use of optically tunable lasers either to define a source frequency or to select a channel from a frequency-multiplexed transmission using the heterodyne receiver technique.
