Paper Abstract

Analog fiber optic links can be used to transmit microwave and millimeter wave signals in applications such as cable TV, antenna remoting and active phased array. In this paper, we examine various issues pertaining to an integrated laser- modulator transmitter module for analog fiber optic links: (1) the performance requirements of the lasers, (2) the performance requirements of the electroabsorption modulator, (3) the bias control of the electroabsorption modulator.
