    Microwave photonics (MWP) techniques for the generation, distribution and pro- cessing of radio frequency (RF) signals have enjoyed a surge of interest in the last few years. The workhorse behind these MWP functionalities is a high performance MWP link. Such a link needs to fulfill several criteria namely high link gain, low noise figure and high spuriousfree dynamic range (SFDR). High SFDR dictates high linearity and low noise in the links. In a conventional intensity modulated direct detection (IMDD) link the SFDR is mainly limited by the laser relative intensity noise (RIN) and the third order intermodulation distortion (IMD) either from the directly modulated laser or the electro-optic modulator.
