Abstract

This paper deals with the radio over fiber system which is novel technique for millimeter wave transmission using optical fiber. An analytical expression is found to generate and distribute millimeter wave signals using an optical dual electrode mach-zehnder modulator.It is found that the odd-order electrical harmonics are cancelled and even-order electrical harmonics are generated at the output of a photo-detector. The analytical expression is verified by simulations and simulation results oriented to measure the performance of Radio over fiber system.
