Abstract

A bidirectional analogue radio-over-fiber link relying on photonic heterodyning and time-division duplex is experimentally demonstrated, successfully transmitting 5G OFDM signals with data rates of 2.4 Gbit/s and 1.2 Gbit/s in down- and uplink directions over 4 m of wireless distance. An optical frequency comb laser is used together with a demultiplexing module based on injection locking to generate stable K-band (18 – 27 GHz) signals, which eliminates the need for complex high-speed electronics for mm-wave generation.
