Abstract

In this invited tutorial review paper, I discuss the various options available to match the state of polarization of the signal and local oscillator waves in a coherent fiber optical communication system. The various advantages and disadvantages of each technique are discussed and directions for further work are identified. © 1987 SPIE.
