A specific impulse optical fiber system has been achieved to enhance the connectivity of 60-GHz wireless networks. Using an impulse technology, this original configuration is an efficient alternative to the conventional 60-GHz radio-over-fiber systems. Baseband subnanosecond pulses first modulate the amplitude of a 60-GHz radio-frequency carrier and second the intensity of a distributed feedback laser operating at 1300 nm. Properties of the multimode plastic optical fiber based on a perfluorinated material are exploited to transmit such signals. The overall system performance has been tested experimentally in a multihop configuration; bit-error-rate measurements are better than for transmission data rates up to 200 Mb/s.
