Paper Abstract

The phase and amplitude stability of directly and externally modulated analog fiber optic links are investigated and factors which limit link stability are discussed. Link gain, phase noise, and phase delay fluctuation measurements have been performed on fiber-optic links which are currently being considered for Navy shipboard antenna remoting and phased array antenna applications. Measurements indicate that good amplitude and adequate phase stability can be obtained using either directly or externally modulated analog photonic links provided certain design considerations are met.
