Coherent detection for spectrally encoded optical labels is proposed and experimentally demonstrated for three label tones spectrally spaced at 1 GHz. The proposed method utilizes a frequency swept local oscillator in a coherent receiver supported by digital signal processing for improved flexibility and upgradeability while reducing label detection subsystem complexity as compared with the conventional optical autocorrelation based approaches.
