Abstract

In this Letter, a passive phase noise compensation-based fiber-optic frequency transfer scheme with frequency dividing and filtering is proposed. The probe signal is divided at the remote site and effectively discriminated from the backscattering noises by electrical bandpass filtering at the local site. By combining the bidirectional transmission with the same wavelength on a single fiber, the scheme can reach the maximum bidirectional propagation symmetry and effectively suppress the effect of backscattering at the same time. The proposed scheme is experimentally demonstrated and compared with the scheme with backscattering. The relative frequency stabilities of 3.9×1014/s and 1.2×1016/104  s are reached for 40 km transfer, which obviously outperform the scheme with backscattering, especially in terms of short-term stability, and are closed to the floor of the back-to-back experimental system.
