Abstract

Fiber-optic-based analog or digital community antenna television systems experience composite second-order (CSO) distortion caused by the interaction between the gain tilt of the doped fiber amplifier and the laser chirp due to modulation. The gain tilt for an analog–digital transmission system with a high-power erbium/ytterbium-codoped fiber amplifier has been experimentally measured and its contribution to the CSO distortion of the system is evaluated. The results are in good agreement when compared with the direct measurement of the CSO distortion of the transmission system with and without the amplifier. The dependence of the gain tilt on the modulation frequency and wavelength of the input light is also investigated.
