It is theoretically shown that the phase noise of laser light source can be automatically eliminated by compensating the differential group delay due to the fiber dispersion between the two sidebands of the optical DSB signal. The bit error rate (BER) measurement of 60 GHz millimeter (mm)-wave subcarrier multiplexed optical double-sideband (DSB) signal transport in dispersion-compensated optical fiber link using fiber Bragg grating (FBG) will show that the effect of the laser phase noise on the BER is as small as a few % relative to the other additive noise effect, thus realizing almost the ultimate performance.
