Abstract

We demonstrate distribution of a 2850MHz rf signal over stabilized optical fiber links. For a 2.2km link we measure an rms drift of 19.4fs over 60h, and for a 200m link an rms drift of 8.4fs over 20h. The rf signals are transmitted as amplitude modulation on a continuous optical carrier. Variations in the delay length are sensed using heterodyne interferometry and used to correct the rf phase. The system uses standard fiber telecommunications components.
