A full-duplex radio-on-fiber (ROF) transport system based on optical single sideband (SSB) modulation, wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) and optical add-drop multiplexing techniques is proposed and demonstrated. A 1.5-dB RF power degradation due to the chromatic dispersion was achieved by employing optical SSB modulation scheme in the system, in which resulting in low bit error rate (BER) and third order intermodulation distortion to carrier ratio (IMD3/C) values. Such a proposed full-duplex ROF transport system is suitable for the long-haul microwave optical link.
