Atomic processing of optically carried RF signals


Rare earth ions embedded in crystals are natural high-quality-factor resonators that can be used for processing optically-carried broadband radio-frequency signals. This chapter focuses on the radio-frequency spectrum analysis function and describes different architectures that are designed to reach tens of gigahertz instantaneous bandwidth with… (More)
