Limits on the performance of RF-over-fiber links and their impact on device design

  title={Limits on the performance of RF-over-fiber links and their impact on device design},
  author={C. Cox and E. Ackerman and G W Betts and J. Prince},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques},
This paper is divided into two major parts. Following a brief introduction that establishes some definitions and assumptions, Section II updates our earlier study on the limits of the RF performance of optical links. Section III reviews progress since our 1997 review paper in the development of devices enabling link performance closer to these limits, including (but not limited to): 1) cascade lasers that permit broad-band direct modulation links with gain >0 dB; 2) injection-locked edge- and… CONTINUE READING
