Paper Abstract

A novel optical single-sideband (OSSB) signal generation with simultaneous IF signal up conversion technique is proposed to overcome the fiber dispersion problem. With this up-conversion technique, a high frequency OSSB signal is generated by using two low bandwidth intensity modulators in combination with fiber gratings. The low frequency local oscillator (LO) signal is modulated by employing frequency doubling technique or frequency quadrupling technique respectively. The OSSB radio frequency (RF) signal generated by mixing the intermediate frequency (IF) signal and low frequency local oscillator (LO) signal, is transmitted over standard single-mode fiber successfully. The received signal error vector magnitude (EVM) is 5.8% rms and 13% rms.
