Abstract

We introduce and demonstrate experimentally a single-channel long-distance interferometer that utilizes frequency division of two optical waves by using acousto-optic devices at the transmitting and receiving nodes of the interferometer. This novel single-channel long-distance interferometer provides unity visibility of the interference and therefore is useful not only for remote sensing and optical communications but also for quantum cryptosystems applications.
