Paper Abstract

Production lasers are available which offer a broadband, 2 - 18 GHz, microwave link capability. Lasers, detectors and fiber optic components are adaptable to aircraft and space environments in small, lightweight, self-contained modules. Tests and analysis of performance specifications show that a third order, spurious free, dynamic range of approximately 100 dB/Hz2/3 can easily be achieved with production components which are reliable, rugged, and hermetically sealed. Future laser improvements are expected to achieve even greater dynamic range.
