A paper on long-haul analog photonics is presented using theory and experimental results. Various analog fiber-optic modulation formats are reviewed, including intensity modulation with direct detection, phase modulation with interferometric demodulation, and suppressed–carried techniques. Modulation linearization methods are reviewed. The limitations of and requirements for photodiode detectors are described.
