Abstract

We analyze the distribution of the rf spectrum in optoelectronic oscillators due to the finite duration of the spectrum measurement. The distribution of the periodogram or the rf spectrum at a given frequency is calculated using a reduced model and is compared to a comprehensive numerical simulation. The model shows that the rf spectrum at a given frequency fluctuates from measurement to measurement with an exponential distribution.
