We propose and demonstrate a photonic microwave up-conversion approach based on a self-starting optoelectronic oscillator (OEO). The OEO incorporating a dual-parallel Mach-Zehnder modulator (DPMZM) simultaneously works as a high-quality local oscillator and a broadband mixer to directly up-convert intermediate-frequency vector signals. The phase noise performance of the oscillation signal is proven to be independent of the vector signals. Through properly setting one dc bias of the DPMZM in the… CONTINUE READING
