Abstract
At the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) we are currently researching the potential for and feasibility of an optical signal demultiplexer based on the Mach-Zehnder coupler. The theory behind the signal demultiplexer involves cascading an n stage Mach-Zehnder coupler. The coupler will be capable of discriminating between M different CSK signals employing M Hadamard code. This thesis involves the examination of a single Mach-Zehnder coupler that operates at 100 Mbps and specifically addresses the mathematical analysis of how it operates, the physical components necessary to build and test a Mach- Zehnder coupler, and the performance of the Mach-Zehnder coupler.
