Abstract
Large spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) has been measured in a fiber optic link using an InGaAsP electroabsorption (EA) waveguide modulator. Link phase noise is investigated and conversion of AM noise to phase noise appears to be an issue in the EA device. Preliminary measurements of the EA link show inferior close-to-carrier phase noise compared to a link using a Mach-Zehnder modulator with similar SFDR. Optical feedback from the output coupling fiber is shown to contribute partially to close-in phase noise.
