Photonic generation of phase-stable and wideband chirped microwave signals based on phase-locked dual optical frequency combs.

Abstract

A photonics-based scheme is presented for generating wideband and phase-stable chirped microwave signals based on two phase-locked combs with fixed and agile repetition rates. By tuning the difference of the two combs' repetition rates and extracting different order comb tones, a wideband linearly frequency-chirped microwave signal with flexible carrier… (More)
