  • A tunable optoelectronic oscillator based on a high-Q spectrum sliced photonic microwave transversal filter

    A Tunable optoelectronic oscillator (OEO) implemented employing a high-Q spectrum sliced photonic microwave transversal filter without using any electronic microwave filters is proposed and experimentally demonstrated for the first time to our knowledge. The high-Q photonic microwave transversal filter is implemented using a sliced broadband optical source and a dispersive element, to perform frequency-tunable microwave frequency selection. The central frequency of the microwave filter is a function of the wavelength spacing of the sliced optical source and the chromatic dispersion of the dispersive element, therefore, the oscillation frequency can be tuned by changing the channel spacing or the chromatic dispersion of the dispersive element. A theoretical analysis is provided, which is verified by a proof-of- concept experiment. The phase noise performance and the frequency tunability are both experimentally investigated.

  • Largely chirped microwave waveform generation using a silicon-based on-chip optical spectral shaper

    We design and fabricate a novel silicon-based optical spectral shaper for the generation of a largely chirped microwave waveform. The optical spectral shaper has a Mach-Zehnder interferometer structure in which multiple micro- ring resonators are cascaded. By controlling the radii of the rings, the spectral response of the spectral shaper can be controlled to have a largely increasing or decreasing free spectral range, which is needed for the generation of a largely chirped microwave waveform based on spectral shaping and wavelength-to time (SS-WTT) mapping. The proposed optical spectral shaper is fabricated using a CMOS compatible process with 193-nm deep ultraviolet lithography. By using such an optical spectral shaper in an SS-WTT mapping system, a largely chirped microwave waveform with a bandwidth of 15.55 GHz and a chirp rate of 17.2 GHz/ns is demonstrated.
