The use of fiber optic (F.O.) systems has flourished with the advent of high quality and reliable low-loss fiber and opto-electronic devices such as semiconductor lasers and photodiodes. Moreover, extension of F.O. communication into the microwave and millimeter wave frequencies has been of particular interest because of system miniaturization and the potential of low-loss bandwidth available. With the diversity of F.O. systems now being designed and deployed, it has become increasingly difficult to classify and evaluate the various microwave and millimeter wave link architectures. This paper summarizes and reviews twelve F.O. link architectures with respect to design, performance and high-frequency potential.
