Abstract

Two important effects that can lead to extensive detrimental effects on short-range radio-over-multimode-fiber systems are presented. The work experimentally shows how transmitter chirp and receiver imperfections determine the degree of both small signal RF variations as well as optical power variations. Both theoretical and experimental results conclude that without taking proper precautions in designing even short-range links, the potential power variations can reach more than 5 dB over just 150m multimode-fiber.
