dc.identifier.citationRomeira, B. and Seunarine, K. and Ironside, C. and Kelly, A. and Figueiredo, J. 2011. A self-synchronized optoelectronic oscillator based on an RTD photodetector and a laser diode. IEEE Photonics Technology Letters. 23 (16): pp. 1148-1150.

We propose and demonstrate a simple and stable low-phase noise optoelectronic oscillator (OEO) that uses a laser diode, an optical fiber delay line, and a resonant tunneling diode (RTD) free-running oscillator that is monolithic integrated with a waveguide photodetector. The RTD-OEO exhibits single-side band phase noise power below - 100 dBc/Hz with more than 30-dB noise suppression at 10 kHz from the center free-running frequency for fiber loop lengths around 1.2 km. The RTD-OEO can be controlled either by the injected optical power or the fiber delay line and its power consumption is below 0.55 W. The RTD-OEO stability is achieved without using other high-speed optical/optoelectronic components and amplification. © 2006 IEEE.
