Paper Abstract

The best optical detection sensitivities and the longest unrepeatered transmission spans for experimental systems at bitrates up to 2 Gb/s are now obtained using heterodyne detection techniques. In addition, the potential advantages of these techniques in multi-channel systems, for video distribution as well as for broad-band local network applications, are now being explored. Recently reported advances in theory and technique are reviewed and current problems and limitations are discussed.
