A new high-resolution tunable RF/microwave photonic notch filter with low-noise performance is presented. It is based on using a dual-input electro-optic intensity modulator together with a frequency-shifting amplified recirculating delay line loop. It can realize a very narrow notch, and also a wide and flat passband to simultaneously excise interference with minimal impact on the wanted signal. The notch filter can be integrated into optical fibre microwave transmission systems. Experimental… CONTINUE READING
