Tunable photonic microwave generation based on a novel dual-polarization fiber laser cavity
2011 (English)In: IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, ISSN 1041-1135, E-ISSN 1941-0174, Vol. 23, no 24, 1878-1880 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A novel dual-polarization fiber laser is proposed by incorporating a distributed feedback grating inscribed in a twin-hole fiber with internal electrodes. Dual-polarization lasing is achieved with a spectral separation of 42 pm. By beating the optical waves at a photodiode, a microwave signal at 5.244 GHz is achieved with a signal-to-noise ratio 45 dB. An electrically tuned microwave signal with a tunable range of 150 MHz is demonstrated.
