Optical electromagnetic wave generator
Patent application, 2001

Microwaves are generated by heterodyning the outputs of two or more optical lasers which have differing central frequencies to produce beat frequencies in the microwave range. One of the beat frequencies is used to modulate the output of at least one of the lasers so as to produce sidebands which differ from the central frequency by an integral number of the sideband frequency. Each laser is connected to one of the other lasers by a weak optical link to optically injection lock the laser to the sideband of the other laser
