The authors present a comprehensive analysis of the chromatic dispersion effects in harmonic upconverted millimeter-wave (mm-wave) fiber-optic links. The optical upconversion is performed through a photonic mixer based on a Mach-Zehnder electrooptical modulator. It is shown that by biasing the electrooptical modulator either at the maximum or at the minimum transmission bias points, the dispersion-induced power penalty effect on the upconverted signal may be sharply mitigated, which results in increasing the frequency-length product of the fiber-optic link. Experimental results are provided for the three different types of bias.
