Gbit / s hybrid optical fiber-wireless link in the W-band ( 75 – 110 GHz )

We experimentally demonstrate an 100 Gbit/s hybrid optical fiber-wireless link by employing photonic heterodyning up-conversion of optical 12.5 Gbaud polarization multiplexed 16-QAM baseband signal with two free running lasers. Bit-error-rate performance below the FEC limit is successfully achieved for air transmission distances up to 120 cm. © 2011 Optical… CONTINUE READING
