A two-wavelength wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) CATV transport system that employed up-converted and polarization modulation (PolM) techniques to reduce the composite second order (CSO) distortion and optical nonlinearities is proposed and demonstrated. Good performances of CSO and composite triple beat (CTB) were obtained accompanied by acceptable carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR) value in our proposed system over a 100-km single-mode fiber (SMF) transmission.
