Title: Practical performance limits on optical frequency transfer over fiber optic links
Published: May 04, 2008
Abstract: We present theory and experiment quantifying the limitations to stable transport of optical frequencies over optical fiber. These are fundamental fiber noise, propagation delay, bidirectional propagation and system noise in the measurement interferometers.
