Abstract

This work demonstrates the feasibility of a full duplex Radioover-fiber (RoF) link employing multi-level OFDM signal via a single-electrode Mach-Zehnder modulator and wavelength reuse for uplink utilizing a reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA). A High spectral efficiency 5-Gb/s 16-QAM OFDM signal with frequency multiplication for the RoF downstream link is demonstrated, and negligible penalty is achieved after 25-km standard single mode fiber transmission. Furthermore, wavelength reuse for a 1.25-Gb/s OOK signal via a RSOA for the upstream link is also demonstrated with a receiver penalty of less than 0.5 dB following 25-km SMF transmission.
