A novel optical approach to implement RF self-interference cancellation for full-duplex communication using phase modulation and optical sideband filtering is proposed and demonstrated experimentally. Based on the inherent out-of-phase property between the left and right sidebands of phase-modulated signal and optical sideband filtering, the RF self-interference cancellation is achieved by tuning the delay time and amplitude in the optical domain. RF self-interference cancellation for single frequency and microwave with various bandwidth of 1MHz, 5MHz and 10 MHz is experimentally demonstrated to verify the proposed technique.
