Photonic enabled RF self-interference cancellation for full-duplex communication by using phase modulation and optical sideband filtering is proposed. Based on the inherent out-of-phase property between the left and right sidebands of phasemodulated signal and optical sideband filtering, the RF self-interference cancellation is achieved by tuning the delay time and amplitude in the optical domain. The operational principle of the proposed scheme is theoretically analyzed and the feasibility is experimentally demonstrated. The optical sideband filtering for the phase modulated signals is measured and the RF self-interference cancellation at different carrier frequencies is studied. The results show a good performance of the proposed photonic scheme for RF self-interference cancellation. The full-duplex communication based on the photonic enabled RF self-interference cancellation is also investigated.
