An all-optical approach for microwave frequency (MWF) measurement with a low-speed oscilloscope is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. In this scheme, an optical filter with a single and ultranarrow passband, together with a tunable laser and a low-speed photodiode is utilized to calculate the MWF by measuring the time delay between the sweeping optical carrier and its upper/lower sideband passing through the filter. Single-frequency and multifrequency measurements are experimentally demonstrated. The measurement recognition, accuracy, and resolution are below 0.1, 0.09, and 0.2 GHz, respectively. This proposed scheme can be easily upgraded to higher frequencies using a modulator with higher bandwidth proportional to the desired measurement range.
