This paper proposes a multiple optical wideband frequency modulation system and clarifies its phase noise insensitivity. In this system, an optical carrier is phase-modulated by a conventional FM signal to generate many sidebands in optical frequency band. The n-th order sideband component yields also FM signal with frequency deviation of n times the one of original FM signal. Therefore, by selecting the high order optical sideband, the wideband optical FM signal can be obtained. Moreover, if some sidebands are simultaneously extracted and multiplied at the receiver, a wideband FM signal with larger frequency deviation and no laser phase noise can be obtained, and FM threshold extension can be realized.
