Paper Abstract

Recent advances in the theory and practice of optical heterodyne detection components and systems has lead to demonstration communications systems which have potential throughputs far greater than those of conventional systems. The ultimate goal is the attainment of a practical technology for accessing the more than 20,000 gigahertz of low-loss transmission bandwidth available with present day single-mode optical fiber.
