Abstract [en]

In this paper, the authors present and experimentally demonstrate an all-optical frequency up-conversion and demultiplexing method in a radio-over-fiber (RoF) system. A Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) and a microwave photonic filter based on a fiber ring structure are used to simultaneously realize the frequency up-conversion and demultiplexing functions. In this proposed system, only a fiber ring and a photodiode (PD) are needed in the base station (BS) to fulfill the signal processing functions. This simple solution makes the base stations more cost-effective, and shows good application potential in the future radio-over-fiber systems.
