Volterra Series Analysis of a Laser Diode Predistorter for Mobile Communication Systems

Linearization of multiple quantum well (MQW) lasers by predistortion requires optimization of the predistorter to match the laser characteristics. A Volterra series model of a predistorter is investigated over a frequency range appropriate to the secon...
The direct transponding of RF signals onto optical fiber is an important element in the implementation of efficient radio-over-fiber systems. MQW lasers exhibit transfer functions from RF to light, which generally offer good linearity, but adequate dynamic range for applications in cellular and cordless systems requires further improvement in...
