Distributing microwave signals via polymer optical fiber (POF) systems

Onderzoeksoutput: Hoofdstuk in Boek/Rapport/CongresprocedureConferentiebijdrageAcademicpeer review


A technique to distribute GHz microwave signals via Graded Index Polymer Optical Fiber (GIPOF) is proposed. The method employs fast sweeping of the optical frequency at the headend and a periodic filter at the remote station, where high frequency microwave signals are generated and fed into antennas. The sweeping rate of the optical frequency is kept within the modal dispersion-limited bandwidth of GIPOF. Simulation results with and without data modulation show this to be a promising technique with possible application in distributing wireless LAN signals. GIPOF offers lower installation and maintenance costs than silica fiber and yet higher performance than copper cables.
