Dispersion induced effects of high-order optical sidebands in the performance of millimeter-wave fiber-optic links
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2006
In this paper, chirped fiber Bragg gratings (CFBGs) are
proposed as signal-phase controllers for microwave-photonic wireless downstream fiber links. The effect of high-order modulation optical sidebands that disturbs the output mm-wave signal due to the chromatic dispersion induced by the gratings is studied theoretically and experimentally. The 1st and 2nd mm-wave harmonics of the output signal have been measured for conventional intensity modulation and for intensity modulation with optical carrier suppression. In the last case, data transmission at 2.5 Gb/s is demonstrated through a chirped grating of 280 ps/nm dispersion in a 40-GHz modulated link.
