One method to generate two optical signals is the lithium niobate (LiNbO3)) Mach-Zehnder optical intensity modulator which is capable of generating two highly stable optical signals (upper sideband and lower sideband components) by applying a sinusoidal microwave signal to an input laser signal. During the signal transmission through the fiber cable, the cable length delay fluctuation is caused together with polarization mode dispersion, which will impact the performance of coherent signal distribution. We have developed the phase stabilizer using the double difference round-trip phase measurement method with Michelson's interferometer. The roundtrip phase measurement is performed on each lightwave signal separately.
