The project targets the enhanced performance and flexibility that can be built into a multichannel, ultra-wideband network using coherent optical techniques. The system concept is based on multichannel optical transmission with heterodyne detection, where all optical channels are synchronised to an optical reference comb. Work has evolved through a series of phases of experimental development and has led to the production of practical integrated optical components and subsystems.
