Photonics can operate essentially from Direct Current to Daylight, allowing use for high frequency applications. This report covers some needs and advantages of radio frequency RF photonics. Also a comparison of analog and digital metrics is covered. The findings show the analog delay line has an important purpose and is a good use for a RF photonic link. In addition, the external intensity modulation combined with direct detection link is the preferred option.
