A bidirectional hybrid cable antenna television (CATV)/radio-over-fiber (ROF) wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) transport system using injection locking technique to suppress the rf power degradation, tunable optical bandpass filter to generate optical single-sideband format for the CATV signal or only one optical sideband format for the ROF one, and photonic crystal fiber to reduce the net dispersion is proposed and demonstrated. Impressive performances of the carrier-to-noise ratio, the composite second-order, the composite triple beat, and the bit error rate were obtained in our proposed systems.
