Paper Abstract

A polarization-insensitive detection technique for coherent heterodyne fiber communications is described. The technique utilizes a dual-IF detection scheme derived by mixing the signal light with orthogonally polarized and frequency offset components of the local oscillator. Experimental results obtained using both bulk-optic and an integrated-optic, polarization selective phase modulator to provide the necessary LO polarization mode differential frequency offset are reported.
