Paper Abstract

The authors present the idea of using direct modulation of a laser for generating multiple RF carriers for hybrid radio/fiber systems. External light injection is used in order to increase the modulation bandwidth of the laser and at the same time to improve the overall system operation. The experiments show a 16 dB enhancement in the performance of the system used for distributing 155 Mb/s data signals on 18.6 and 19 GHz carriers.
