Paper Abstract

Analyses and experimental results of microwave semiconductor laser nonlinearity are presented. Various system applications employing the device nonlinear characteristics are discussed. For example, a high performance Ku-band fiber optic link with a system signal-to-noise ration (SNR) of better than 120 dB/Hz was demonstrated at an IF of 70 MHz. Also, the measured link SNR better than 100 dB/Hz was achieved at 26.5 GHz with frequency up-conversion.
