Microwave/Millimeter-Wave Generation Using Multi-Wavelength Photonic Crystal Fiber Brillouin Laser
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 80, 307-320, 2008
Abstract
An all-optical microwave generation using a multiwavelength photonic crystal fiber Brillouin laser is presented. A highly nonlinear photonic crystal fiber with the length of 25m is used as Brillouin gain medium. A Fabry-Perot cavity with two fiber Bragg gratings as reflectors are designed in order to enhance the Brillouin conversion efficiency. The fiber Bragg gratings can be used to selectively excite the jth-order Stokes' wave and suppress other order Stokes' waves. The mechanism for microwave/millimeterwave generation is theoretically analyzed. In the experiment, both 9.788 GHz and 19.579 GHz microwave signals are achieved through mixing the pump wave with the first-order and the second-order Stokes' waves.
