Abstract

We induce a microwave photonic bandpass filter into an optoelectronic oscillator to generate a chaotic ultra-wideband signal in both the optical and electrical domain. The theoretical analysis and numerical simulation indicate that this system is capable of generating band-limited high-dimensional chaos. Experimental results coincide well with the theoretical prediction and show that the power spectrum of the generated chaotic signal basically meets the Federal Communications Commission indoor mask. The generated chaotic carrier is further intensity modulated by a 10 MHz square wave, and the waveform of the output ultra-wideband signal is measured for demonstrating the chaotic on-off keying modulation.
