Abstract
We experimentally demonstrated the performance of a reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as an external modulator for optical uplink in radio over fiber (RoF) systems. The transmission performances for single and four channels were compared by error vector magnitude (EVM). The experimental results show that a little bit degradation for four channels was obtained when compared to single channel's one
