Mohamad Nor, Mohd Hafiz and Kanesan, Thavamaran and Maskuriy, Farha and Yusuf, A. and Fatah, F. A. and Ahmad Anas, Siti Barirah (2020) Experimental demonstration of all-optical PolMux RoF system with multiservice transmission. Optics Communications, 475. art. no. 126293. pp. 1-6. ISSN 0030-4018


In this paper, a Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) system is proposed by combining optical carrier suppression (OCS) and polarization multiplexing (PolMux) techniques in all-optical mode to enable multi-service transmission. Previous studies on RoF system only exploited multi-service transmission over low radio frequency (RF) oscillator-based PolMux, subcarrier multiplexing (SCM) and wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) techniques. Hence, herein, PolMux jointly with OCS techniques are exploited as a new medium of multiplexing in RoF system. Essentially, two contributions are unveiled, firstly the combination of all optical OCS and PolMux for RoF technology to enable multi-service transmission, and secondly an end-to-end all-optical transmission with the inclusion of wireless medium at millimeter wave (mmWave) frequency. The results indicate a highly reliable OCS-PolMux topology, where the EVM deterioration due to polarization leakage factor was only 1% to 2% for both services transmitted at the same frequency. Most importantly, the proposed system demonstrated an end-to-end system transmission with optical receiver power budget of up to 6 dB.
