In this paper, we investigate the possibility of transmitting full-duplex digital and analog signal in a carrier reused, re-modulating Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) system based on reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA). We study the effect of tuning the modulation index of the On-Off-Keying Downlink (OOK-DL) signal on its reception performance and the amplitude modulation erasing in RSOA. By properly selecting operating conditions, downlink residual modulation on the reflected optical… CONTINUE READING
