A hybrid lightwave subcarrier CATV/16-QAM/16-QAM orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission system employing light injection/optoelectronic feedback techniques and photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is proposed and demonstrated. Good performance of carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR), composite second order, and composite triple beat were obtained for the CATV band, and high CNR and low bit error rate values were achieved for the 16-QAM and 16-QAM OFDM bands over a combination of 80 km single-mode fiber (SMF) and 2.86 km PCF transport.
