This volume presents a review of RF (radio frequency) photonic components, transmission systems, and signal processing examples in optical fibers from leading academic, government, and industry scientists working in this field. It also introduces the reader to various related technologies such as direct modulation of laser sources, external modulation techniques, and detectors. With an emphasis on design, performance and practical application, this book will be of particular interest to engineers and research scientists developing novel systems based on optical fibers and analog RF applications.
