Paper Abstract

High-performance, low-cost microwave microwave RF/IF fiber optic links which are based on a heterodyne laser approach are described. The system combines microwave frequency and intermediate frequency fiber optic links into a single link, which provides certain advantages, including relaxation of the stringent requirement of a laser source, minimization of system noise and nonlinearity, the use of multimode fiber optic cable and connectors, and elimination of down-converter requirement. A 12 GHz link with 70 MHz IF has a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of better than 120 dB/Hz and a 26.5 GHz up-converted link has a SNR of better than 100 dB/Hz.
