Paper Abstract

Subcarrier links and subcarrier multiplexed optical networks find a wide range of applications such as video delivery, antenna remoting, and local area networks. This paper presents the foundations for the realization of all-optical subcarrier links and subcarrier multiplexed optical networks based on the optical current-controlled oscillators (CCO). Using one embodiment of the optical CCO employing a two- section laser diode, we first present the static and modulation characteristics of the periodic-orbit subcarrier of the optical CCO. Then, the performances of an FM subcarrier optical link are estimated using realistic device parameters.
