We describe the analysis of the performance of coherent fiber optic links used to carry analog information. Optical AM, FM, and PM coherent systems are considered and compared with the direct detection link implementation using AM. We report for the first time results on the analysis of the effects of laser phase noise on AM, PM and FM analog coherent system performance and indicate the potentially highly stringent laser linewidth require-ments for such systems. The theoretical limits of performance and that practically achievable using realisable components is analysed and assessed.
