Abstract

Photonic downconversion (PDC) technique for dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) millimeter-wave-band radio-on-fiber (ROF) uplink systems is investigated. The PDC technique is carried out for a lump of all uplink wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) ROF signals at a central station. Each channel is optically separated, photodetected, and demodulated individually without serious signal degradation due to the fiber dispersion effect. Error-free 25-GHz-spaced DWDM transmission and demultiplexing of two 60-GHz-band, 155-Mb/s differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) ROF signals over 25-km-long standard single-mode fiber (SMF) are experimentally demonstrated.
