In this paper, we experimentally demonstrate a method to generate a frequency-doubling photonic 16-quadrature-amplitude-modulation (16QAM) vector millimeter-wave (mm-wave) signal by using a single phase modulator (PM) with an amplitude and phase precoding technique. The PM is driven by a 2-Gbaud 16QAM-modulated precoded vector signal at 20 GHz. We transmit the generated optical radio-frequency (RF) signal at 40 GHz over 22-km single-mode fiber, and after heterodyne beating in a single-ended… CONTINUE READING
