ABSTRACT An experimental balanced optical second-order phase-locked loop constructed using 1320 nm diode laser pumped miniature Nd:YAG lasers is discussed. The loop is stable and has a phase error of less than 1.8 degrees when the received signal power is -65 dBm or more. The phase error appears to be dominated by the lasers' frequency noise as long as the signal power is more than -60 dBm.< >

    ABSTRACT: The performance of a high-power RF photonic link incorporating a fiber-based Mach–Zehnder modulator is reported. The 3.2 V dual-output Vπ of the fiber modulator, combined with the 100 mA balanced detection scheme, yielded a link gain greater than 13 dB and a +16 dBm input third-order intercept. © 2000 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

    ABSTRACT: The low-loss wide bandwidth capability of opto-electronic systems makes them attractive for the transmission and processing of microwave signals, while the development of high-capacity optical communication systems has required the use of microwave techniques in optical transmitters and receivers. These two strands have led to the development of the research area of microwave photonics. This paper reviews the development status of microwave photonic devices, describes their systems applications, and suggests some likely areas for future development
