Optical Microwave Frequency Up-Conversion Via a Frequency-Doubling Optoelectronic Oscillator

  title={Optical Microwave Frequency Up-Conversion Via a Frequency-Doubling Optoelectronic Oscillator},
  author={Myunghun Shin and Prem Kumar},
  journal={IEEE Photonics Technology Letters},
We propose and demonstrate an optical microwave modulator that incorporates a low phase-noise optoelectronic oscillator (OEO) for frequency up-conversion in a radio-over-fiber system. A single Mach-Zehnder lithium-niobate waveguide modulator working as a local oscillator in a frequency-doubling OEO directly up-converts the baseband signals to a carrier band. We demonstrate frequency up-conversion to the 20-GHz band for optical analog signals in the intermediate-frequency (IF) band and for… CONTINUE READING
