Abstract

The performance and potential of a W-band radio-over-fiber link is analyzed, including a characterization of the wireless channel. The presented setup focuses on minimizing complexity in the radio frequency domain, using a passive radio frequency transmitter and a Schottky diode based envelope detector. Performance is experimentally validated with carriers at 75–87GHz over wireless distances of 30–70m. Finally the necessity for and impact of bend insensitive fiber for on-site installation are discussed and experimentally investigated.
