Abstract
The potential for coherent detection to improve the receiver sensitivity and expand the transmission capacity of optical communications systems has now been demonstrated in a number of laboratories, but much remains to be done to develop systems for use in telecommunications networks. In the light of reported experimental results, this paper reviews the performance required of devices and components for coherent systems, and considers the developments needed to bridge the gap between laboratory demonstration and field application.
