    We designed and fabricated a 100 GHz range integrated photoreceiver with zero-bias operational uni-traveling-carrier photodiode (UTC-PD) and pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (PHEMT) amplifier, which performed the roles of photonic power generation and 100 GHz RF signal generation. Using the integrated photoreceiver, high data rate radio- and power-over-fiber transmission through multi-core fiber communication was demonstrated. Subsequently, a bit error rate of 1 × 10-3 could be achieved with 12 Gbps, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), 16 quadrature amplitude modulation (16-QAM), and an intermediate frequency of 92 GHz, and the crosstalk issue in radio- and power-over-fiber transmission through multi-core fiber was discussed.
