Abstract : This report contains the results of the development and testing of a digital coherent fiber optic link and a separate analog coherent fiber optic link. The issues of realizable performance, cost and complexity of implementation and device tolerances are covered for each within a theoretical framework. The digital coherent fiber optic link was one of only two nearly simultaneously appearing 19-inch rack mountable systems in the world. The analog coherent fiber optic link is the first of its kind in the world and new ground is covered in theoretical analysis. In addition, the self heterodyne/homodyne concept is described and experimental results are shown.
