Nonlinear equalization of microwave photonic links
October 31, 2016
IEEE Int. Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics, MWP 2016, 31 October - 3 November 2016.
High dynamic range is a key requirement in advanced microwave photonic systems. We demonstrate compensation of nonlinearities occurring in microwave photonic links using a novel digital nonlinear equalization technique and demonstrate suppression of distortion products by 33 dB with a small number of equalizer coefficients.
