We propose a microwave photonics system for radio frequency self-interference cancellation using optical techniques. With a simple structure, this system employs two low-cost directly modulated lasers and a balanced photodetector to subtract the strong self-interference signal from a corrupted received signal. For commonly used wireless applications, 40-dB cancellation within 900-MHz band and 33-dB cancellation within 2.4-GHz band are experimentally obtained, both over 400-MHz bandwidth. Moreover, for ultra-wideband cancellation, this system achieves more than 27-dB cancellation over 6-GHz bandwidth. The experimental results show good recovery of the weak signal of interest buried by strong self-interference after the cancellation.
