A 30-GHz optically injection-locked self- oscillating optoelectronic mixer (OIL-SOM) is implemented with a high- performance InP-InGaAs heterojunction phototransistor. The subharmonic conversion efficiency and phase noise characteristics of OIL-SOM are investigated and used for analyzing OIL-SOM-based 60-GHz radio-over-fiber downlink data transmission performance. The OIL-SOM characteristics provide lower and upper boundaries for the input optical local oscillation (LO) power range within which the link performance does not significantly depend on input optical LO power.
