Summary: 
A novel base station for microwave radio-on-fiber systems is proposed. It consists of an L-band electroabsorption modulator and a uni-traveling-carrier photodiode. We show it is applicable for bias-free operation and full-duplex transmission and demonstrate 100-Mbit/s bidirectional data transmission in the 5-GHz band.
