Physical principles of encoding and data transmission by quasidiscrete spectral supercontinuum obtained by the interference of phase-modulated light pulses with superbroadened spectra are discussed. The possibility of ultrafast data transmission at the rate of 70 Tbit/s is demonstrated experimentally.
