Abstract

We proposed and experimentally demonstrated a novel radio-over-fiber architecture using an electrical mixer and an optical intensity modulator based on double side-band modulation scheme to generate dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) optical millimeter for carrying downstream data and centralized lightwave for carrying upstream data. Since the remaining optical carriers with high power have been reused, the optical power is effectively utilized; therefore the system cost can be reduced.

Experimental setup for DWDM optical mm-wave generation and wavelength reuse for upstream data connection by using DSB modulation. TOF: tunable optical filter. Resolution for all optical spectra is 0.01nm. Inset (i) the optical spectrum of DWDM optical mm-wave generated by DSB modulation. (ii) The optical spectrum of DWDM optical mm-wave after transmission over 20km SMF-28. (iii) The optical spectrum of DWDM mm-wave after the interleaver. (iv) The optical spectrum of the desired channel optical mm-wave filtered by TOF1. (v) The optical spectrum of remaining optical carrier separated by interleaver. (vi) The spectrum of desired channel optical carrier filtered by TOF2. (vii) The spectrum of desired channel uplink optical carrier modulated with the uplink data.
