A novel analog fiber optic link is described that incorporates class E switching amplifier techniques in the link architecture to provide RF power gain with high post-detector dc-RF conversion efficiency. The proof-of-concept link was designed to operate at a nominal design frequency of 70 MHz and has an RF gain of 30 dB and a maximum post-detector power amplifier dc-RF conversion efficiency of 78%
