We present a radio-frequency (RF) signal distribution system via optical fibers. We utilize an all-digital platform that encompasses a phase-locked loop, numerically-controlled oscillator, and fiber phase noise cancellation system. Our system achieves a fractional frequency transfer stability of 4 × 10-13 at 1 s and 6 × 10-17 at one day for the distribution of RF signals over 70 km of optical fiber. We demonstrate that this performance can be achieved with standard crystal oscillators. Our… CONTINUE READING
