Abstract
Practical, low-cost, broadband, multi-octave (0-20+ GHz), high-dynamic-range, "linear" analog photonic links are needed in many DoD communications, radar, and surveillance applications. EOSPACE and University of California, San Diego are proposing to develop a practical, broadband (0-20GHz) linearized RF analog fiber-optic link, by using a broadband optical modulator design whose transfer function has greatly enhanced linearity as compared to a conventional Mach-Zehnder device. In addition, our proposed device is very practical to realize due to relaxed fabrication tolerances and thus leads to low cost high-yield manufacturability.
