Abstract

A simplified, cost-effective millimeter-wave radio-over-fiber system is proposed by heterodyning two independent low-cost light-sources and RF homodyning at the receiver that suppresses phase-noise effects. Proposed system avoids phase/frequency locking, high-speed modulators and local oscillators/mixers in CO and BSs.
