Paper Abstract

The proof-of-concept demonstration of an microwave photonics cross-connect for telecom satellite repeaters is reported. The system includes optical distribution of a high-purity local oscillator at 26 GHz, frequency down-conversion from 30 to 4 GHz, and optical cross-connection of microwave signals.
