Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a phase stabilization method for transfer and downconvert radio frequency (RF) signal from remote antenna to center station via a radio-over-fiber (ROF) link. Different from previous phase-locking-loop-based schemes, we post-correct any phase fluctuation by mixing during the downconversion process at the center station. A rapid and endless operation is predicted. The ROF technique transfers the received RF signal directly, which will reduce the electronic complexity at the antenna end. The proposed scheme is experimentally demonstrated, with a phase fluctuation compression factor of about 200. The theory and performance are also discussed.
