Paper Abstract

The wideband, low loss transmission capability of optical fiber links has led to an ever-increasing interest in their use for the distribution of radio signals for applications such as broadband wireless access networks, sensor networks and radar systems. For many applications, it is highly desirable that the microwave signals can be processed in the optical domain without extra optical to electrical and electrical to optical conversions. In this paper, recent advances in all-optical RF signal processing, including all-optical microwave filtering and all-optical microwave mixing, for radio over fiber networks applications are reviewed.
