Paper Abstract

The current status of microwave fiber optic links is discussed. It is noted that to date, high-speed links are limited not only by the available bandwidth of analog lasers but also by the fiber dispersion effect on link parameters. New 15 GHz distributed feedback lasers are capable of significantly reducing dispersion problems while providing enhanced bandwidth. An optical isolator with the microwave circuitry makes it possible to reach coupling efficiencies as high as 60 percent.
