A down-conversion optical link with a radio frequency (RF) conversion gain of 33 dB was demonstrated at 450 MHz. The gain was increased to 17 dB using photodetector impedance matching. Limitations due to each link element are examined and down-conversion gain up to the millimeter-wave (mm-wave) frequency band is predicted
