A simple scheme for the generation of full-duty-cycle triangular pulses is proposed and experimentally demonstrated using a dual-parallel Mach-Zehnder modulator driven by a single-frequency RF signal. By properly setting the bias voltages and the RF power, even-order harmonics in the optical intensity are suppressed, and the amplitude of the first-order harmonic is 9 times of that of the third-order harmonic. A periodical triangular pulse train is obtained in the time domain. 2.5, 5, and 10 GHz… CONTINUE READING
