Abstract
We have proposed and studied a unique technique of synthesis of the optical coherence function. It has been demonstrated that the optical coherence function can be synthesized into desired shapes by appropriately modulating the optical frequency of the laser source and the phase difference in an interferometer. This technique has been used for photonic sensing and optical information processing applications. In this presentation, the principle of the technique is explained, the performance deterioration factors and the countermeasures are discussed, and then several application systems, including optical information processing, reflectometry, and distributed fiber-optic sensing, are introduced.
