Paper Abstract

A polarisation tracking heterodyne optical receiver is reported which uses a dither technique to achieve the required polarisation control and performance measurements in a 70 Mbit/s ASK system are presented. Other techniques for achieving polarisation insensitive coherent detection are outlined and compared with the polarisation tracking receiver.
