Paper Abstract

A novel method is proposed for optical up-converted single-sideband (OSSB) signal generation in radio over fiber links, which can realize optical carrier reuse synchronously. The OSSB signal is generated in order to overcome the fiber dispersion problem by using two intensity modulators in combination with fiber gratings. With this up-conversion technique, a 25 GHz OSSB radio frequency signal is generated by mixing an intermediate frequency signal (5 GHz) and low frequency local oscillator signal (10 GHz). The signal is transmitted over 25 km standard single-mode fiber successfully. And the received signal error vector magnitude is 5.8% root mean square, with eye diagram widely open.
