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… CONTINUE READING
