Abstract

A remote-node heterodyne millimeter-wave radio-over-fiber (MMW-RoF) link was proposed by a dual-mode optical carrier with orthogonal polarizations and single-wavelength modulation, which effectively suppresses the chromatic dispersion and four-wave mixing. For optical wireline transmission, the bit error rate (BER) of a 25-km single-mode fiber (SMF) transmitted baseband 24-Gbit/s 64-QAM OFDM can be improved to 5.9×104 with an error vector magnitude (EVM) of 7.1%. Moreover, the beat 35-GHz MMW carrier with a 32-dB carrier-to-noise ratio was generated for wireless transmission. The BER and EVM of passband 8-Gbit/s 16-QAM OFDM at 35-GHz MMW carrier were 3.4×103 and 17.1%, respectively, after 25-km SMF and 1.6-m free-space transmissions.
