Effects of high-order laser distortion products in radio over free-space optical links

Abstract

RoFSO links are found to be susceptible to high-order laser distortion making conventional SFDR ineffective as a performance indicator. For the first time, peak input power is demonstrated as a service-independent bound on dynamic range.
