2 引文 斯高帕斯(Scopus)


Frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) microwave generation is studied using a semiconductor laser operating at stabilized period-one (P1) nonlinear dynamics when subject to comb-like (CL) optical injection. The phase locking established between the P1 dynamics and the CL optical injection not only improves the P1 oscillation stability considerably but also provides a mechanism to change the P1 oscillation frequency through varying the modulation frequency of the CL optical injection. As a result, a stable FMCW microwave at a central frequency of up to 40 GHz is generated with its frequency varying linearly, triangularly, or step-wisely over a range of 4 GHz during a repeated time period that can be reconfigured at least from 100 ns to 10 ms. This system is capable of operation up to at least 100 GHz.
