In this paper, we proposed a dual-step optical single sideband (SSB) modulation scheme for the RoF systems application. Through comparing the power penalty of DSB and SSB, we demonstrated the optical SSB modulation has better dispersion tolerance. After the 50km SMF transmission, the received sensitivity is 16.3 dBm.
