MCF Skew Estimation at the Receiver for ARoF Antenna Beamforming

Abstract : Multicore fibers can be used for Radio over Fiber transmission of mmwave signals for phased array antennas in 5G networks. The inter-core skew of these fibers distorts the radiation pattern and has to be measured and compensated. We propose a method to accurately measure the differential delays remotely, after installation, without intervening heavily with the transmitter setup. The properties of the phase response measured at a distant receiver are exploited to acquire the differential delays among the antenna array elements.
