An exact analytical expression of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for an intersatellite microwave photonics link with an optical preamplifier is derived considering the signal fade caused by the pointing errors of the transceiver, and an optimized model for laser output power and direct current (DC) bias phase shift of the Mach-Zehnder modulator is… CONTINUE READING
