A spectrally efficient millimeter-wave (mm-wave) fiber-wireless transmission system is presented demonstrating downstream transportation of 155-Mb/s BPSK data at 38 GHz over 50 km of standard single-mode fiber and a 5-m wireless link. The effect of fiber chromatic dispersion on the transmission of the mm-wave optical carrier was overcome by using a single dual-electrode Mach-Zehnder modulator to generate optical single-sideband (SSB) modulation with carrier. We also demonstrate a simple technique for obtaining electrical SSB that will allow the effect of fiber dispersion across the bandwidth of the information to be overcome with simple electrical delay equalization. We predict that this fiber-wireless system could permit the transportation of mm-wave signals with large bit rates over long optical fiber distances.
