Abstract
We propose and demonstrate a multifunction-stabilized photonic link, which is capable of transmitting wideband time signal and stable frequency signal between the central station and the remote end bidirectionally over a single-fiber link. Experimentally, 3.95-GHz frequency signal and pulsed time signal are delivered to the remote end with frequency stability of 3.6×10−16 and time jitter of 0.45 ps at 4000 s average time, respectively. Also, a downlink radio frequency signal is transferred from the remote end back to the central station with suppressed delay variation.
