Paper Abstract

We present an improvement of an analog optical transmission performance by reducing both the nonlinearity and the periodic RF carrier suppression. The proposed technique takes advantage of the gain saturation characteristic of semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) to reduce the intrinsic nonlinearity of electroabsorption-modulated laser (EML) and the negative chirp characteristic of SOA and EML to expand the transmission length and operating frequency. Furthermore, RF signal gain was also obtained through optical signal amplification.
