Simultaneous all-optical frequency up- and down-conversions of optical IF and optical RF signals to the upper and lower frequency band, respectively, using a SOA-MZI without crosstalk were experimentally demonstrated. Concept of full-duplex WDM RoF link utilizing simultaneous up/downconversions is proposed.
