Abstract

In this Letter, we propose a phase drift cancellation method for remote radio frequency transfer. Phase fluctuation along the transmission fiber, which is induced by temperature and pressure changes, is measured and compensated by a heterodyne optoelectronic delay-locked loop. The control loop consists of a heterodyne optoelectronic phase detector, a microwave delay module, and the loop filter. We demonstrate the concept by transmitting a 10 GHz microwave frequency over 50 km single-mode fiber, with subpicosecond jitters measured at the remote end.
