Abstract
The use of optical fiber has revolutionized the communications industry during the few years in which it has been available, and still further advances are just over the horizon. Figure 1 shows five generations of optical fiber communication systems recognized today.1 The increasing capabilities of each generation are characterized by significant increases in repeater spacing and channel capacity. The most advanced of these concepts is the use of heterodyne or homodyne detection of digital signals.
