Evaluation of Output Phase Stability in a Fiber Optic Two-way Frequency Distribution System
Paper i proceeding, 2008
The assembly of a real-time actively controlled fiber-optic frequency transfer link based on additions to an existing static solution is proposed and evaluated. The dynamic variations of transmission delays, caused mainly by temperature dependence of the fiber, is continuously measured and used to adjust a delay at the transmitter for net cancellation of the effect. The resulting link shows no visible temperature dependence; however, the feedback induces added noise at short integration times.
