Microwave photonic mixer based on a single bidirectional Mach-Zehnder modulator.

Abstract

A microwave photonic mixer based on a single electro-optic Mach-Zehnder intensity modulator operating in both directions is presented. In this mixer structure, the light from the optical source travels in opposite directions inside the modulator and is modulated by both the RF signal and the local oscillator (LO). The output optical spectrum comprises the… (More)
