Abstract

We experimentally and theoretically analyze an original method based on two-wave mixing in an erbium-doped fiber amplifier for optical carrier reduction of microwave signals. 75% optical carrier attenuation has been observed, and a 10 dB modulation depth increase of the microwave signal is experimentally demonstrated. Moreover, calculated results are in good agreement with measurements and predict that up to 80% carrier attenuation is easily possible.
