Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper describes a method of multiplexing several optical signals onto a single spatial channel (e.g., a single-mode fiber) using a short coherence length continuous wave light source. Several system configurations which utilize this technique are proposed, and some design considerations are discussed. Experimental results for a single sensor and receiver are presented and compared with theoretical predictions.
