Paper Abstract

Various circuits dedicated to high spectral purity signal transmission using fiber optics are presented. Three application types are investigated: signal transmission of ultra stable oscillators at 10 MHz, IF distribution at 874 MHz and microwave synthesized signals at 3.5 GHz. The receiver circuit is an optically synchronized oscillator, which provides a good signal conditioning far from the carrier while maintaining the high input signal quality close to the carrier
