Dual-wavelength fiber-laser-based transmission of millimeter waves for 5G-supported Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) links


This work utilizes an experimentally designed erbium-doped fiber-based tunable dual-wavelength laser (EDFL) to generate phase-stable millimeter waves over a wide-band of ≈ 12–110 GHz and their transmission over the radio-over-fiber (RoF) link. The generated fiber-laser-based millimeter waves are transmitted over a RoF link, including an optical link of 20 km and a wireless link of 50 m, which is carried out via a co-simulation of Optisystem™ and MATLAB™ software. The successful transmission of the proposed fiber-laser-based millimeter waves show the possibilities of realizing diverse 5G-supported microwave-photonic systems.
