A principal factor in realizing a high-performance bandwidth-efficient fiber communication system at an acceptable cost is the choice of modulation format on the optical carrier. In this context pulse time modulation (PTM) techniques represent an attractive alternative to purely digital or analogue methods. This paper reviews the PTM family and explores their potential for use in high-speed fiber systems intended for transmission of analogue data.
