Paper Abstract

In order to generate a stable and pure 60GHz millimeter-wave signal, a periodically wavelength-swept lightwave signal over a limited wavelength range which center wavelength at 1310nm and frequency-swept rate up to 1GHz is an important component of the whole system. In this paper, we focus on three methods to yield the wanted periodically wavelength-swept lightwave signal, which are sinusoidal wavelength scan, triangular wavelength scan and saw-toothed wavelength scan. We analyze in theory the power characteristics and the spectrum characteristics of the 60GHz millimeter-wave signals relative to the different wavelength-swept lightwave signal generated by different wavelength-swept methods. Furthermore, we simulate the 60GHz radio-over-fiber transmission systems respectively with the three wavelength sweep methods and gain the results in agreement with the analysis in theory.
