ASK and FSK heterodyne detection has been previously demonstrated using semiconductor lasers over long fiber lengths1,2 for bit rates up to 140 Mbit/s. Higher-speed transmission is important in applications such as the delivery of high-definition TV in the future broadband integrated-services digital network (B-ISDN).
