The ability to measure S-parameters under modulated stimuli can be quite valuable, particularly for devices that behave differently under sinusoidal or modulated stimuli.
Thus, cables, connectors, filters and attenuators do not exhibit different S-parameters when measured with sinusoids or modulated waveforms.
The spectral sidelobes of the MSK modulated signal roll off rather slowly.
If the optical fiber losses are negligible, then multiplying Equations 1 and 2 yields an expression for the RF-to-RF gain of a directly modulated fiber-optic link
