We present in this paper recent results obtained in the field of bidirectional transmissions, coherence multiplexing, and integrated optics. We report the description of a new kind of Mach-Zehnder interferometer integrated in lithium niobate (LiNbO3), which is the key device of a coherence multiplexed bidirectional link. The orientation of the waveguides, parallel to the Z-axis of LiNbO3, yields a polarization independent behavior. The working conditions of the modulators and the results obtained as they are used in a full-duplex bidirectional link are presented.
