A radio over fiber link for the wireless distribution of 3-Gb/s uncompressed HD video is developed. The power fading caused by the dispersion of the optical fiber is effectively reduced by using a polarization modulator (PolM) in the transmitter. In the receiver, an injection-locked frequency-doubling optoelectronic oscillator (OEO) is employed to simultaneously extract the RF carrier and perform photonic microwave downconversion. The system features simple configuration, high performance and stable operation.
