Paper Abstract

A novel 4 level FSK technique for halving the number of transmitter lasers in a multichannel FSK system is described. This is accomplished by appropriately coding two independent binary signals into a 4 level FSK signal pnor to transmission. At the receiver the local oscillator optically decodes the signal prior to envelope detection. This scheme maintains the simplicity of a binary envelope detector and results in no system performance degradation over binary FSK.
