Nonlinear Distortion Due to Cross-Phase Modulation in Microwave Fiber-Optic Links With Optical Single-Sideband or Electrooptical Upconversion

A new analytical model is presented to study nonlinear distortion due to cross-phase modulation in dispersive and nonlinear wavelength-division-multiplexing microwave fiber-optic links. The model is not based on the pump-probe approach. Hence, it can be used to analyze a larger variety of links, including, in particular, electrooptical upconversion links… CONTINUE READING
