Paper Abstract

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