Paper Abstract

Microwave fiberoptic transmission system provides numerous advantages for satellite communications terminals and antenna remoting. This paper described a 1.3 um, 6-15 GHz, 1 Km fiberoptic system design and performance. The microwave characteristics of the laser diode photodetector are discussed in detail. The preliminary measured system signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) are 110-120 dB/Hz in the frequency range of 6-15 GHz. A 20 to 30 dB SNR improvement is achievable when coherent detection and PD impedance matching are employed.
