Review of optoelectronic oscillators based on modelocked lasers and resonant tunneling diode optoelectronics
MetadataShow full item record
Optoelectronic oscillators can provide low noise oscillators at radio frequencies in the 0.5-40 GHz range and in this paper we review two recently introduced approaches to optoelectronic oscillators. Both approaches use an optical fibre feedback loop. One approach is based on passively modelocked laser diodes and in a 40 GHz oscillator achieves up to 30 dB noise reduction. The other approach is based on resonant tunneling diode optoelectronic devices and in a 1.4 GHz oscillator can achieve up to 30 dB noise reduction. © 2011 Copyright Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
