Abstract

We propose a method of reconfigurable radio frequency up/downconversion using a parametric optical loop mirror. The baseband optical signal can be unconverted to a carrier-suppressed radio-over-fiber signal at a wide range of frequencies without the help of optical filters to remove the optical carrier. Upconversion of up to 60 GHz and downconversion from 40 GHz for both single-channel and wavelength-division-multiplexing signals using the same setup are demonstrated.
