Microwave Harmonic Frequency Generation utilizing the properities of an Optical Phase Modulator
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2004
New techniques to generate a harmonic microwave frequency modulated on an optical carrier are presented. All these techniques utilize the polarization-dependent properties of a LiNbO3-phase modulator and manage to achieve 40-GHz modulation using only 10-GHz electronics. The signal quality of the generated frequency is mainly determined by the 10-GHz signal generator, and the suppression of undesired lower order harmonic frequencies exceeds 30 dB.
