We experimentally demonstrate the combined use of an ultrabroadband, incoherent, continuous-wave (CW) supercontinuum (SC) and a dispersion-profiled fiber to implement a photonic microwave filter with a -factor as high as 140. In our scheme based on spectrum slicing, such a high -factor can be readily achieved due to the following two reasons. The -factor restriction due to the limited wavelength tap number caused by narrow spectral bandwidth of conventional optical broadband sources can readily… CONTINUE READING
