DFT-S-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and single-carrier (SC) modulation are two typical modulation formats in radio-over-fiber (RoF) systems. They may have respective advantages and disadvantages in different scenarios. Therefore, bit error ratio comparison results of these two modulation formats will be useful for designing and optimizing the practical RoF system. We experimentally compare these two modulation formats in a long wireless distance RoF system at W-band. It can be concluded that DFT-S-OFDM and SC modulation have similar performances in a RoF system with transmission distance over 80-km fiber and 224-m wireless link.
