In this paper, an overview of coherent lightwave communications (CLC) was given for the new comer to the field and also to discuss the various components of a CLC system to highlight the papers that were to be presented in the session to follow during the day. The topics covered included: (i) comparison of CLC to direct detection system, (ii) advantages of CLC systems, (iii) modulation formats and their relative advantages, (iv) polarization controllers and polarization preserving fibers, (v) examples of systems demonstrated in the laboratory, (vi) application areas of CLC in long-haul communications, local area networks and space communications. The reader is refered to (i) the many excellent articles in this proceeding, (ii) to the following references, for further details an all aspects of coherent lightwave communications.
