We analyze the distribution of the rf spectrum in optoelectronic oscillators due to the finite duration of the spectrum measurement. The distribution of the periodogram or the rf spectrum at a given frequency is calculated using a reduced model and is compared to a comprehensive numerical simulation. The model shows that the rf spectrum at a given frequency fluctuates from measurement to measurement with an exponential distribution.
