Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a new optical double-sideband modulation technique that is immune to fiber chromatic dispersion and thus free of dispersion-induced RF power fading. The proposed modulation technique also provides a 3dB improvement of RF power compared with optical single-sideband modulation. The proposed modulation technique is analyzed in theory and simulation. It is shown that for a given fiber length an optimum electrical phase shift exists to completely cancel the dispersion-induced RF power fading. We verify this proposed modulation technique experimentally for a single-tone RF signal and for a multiband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing ultrawideband signal.
