Paper Abstract

Coherence modulation of light consists in coding a signal as an optical delay greater than the coherence length of light. It makes use of interferometers powered by sources which exhibit a short coherence length. Such sources can be operated either as classical sources or quantum sources. We describe some applications dealing with optical communications and quantum cryptography.
