Abstract

A novel scheme was proposed to generate a millimeter-wave (MMW) optical pulse by combining pulse repetition rate multiplication (PRRM) technology and temporal Talbot effect (TTE). A cascaded Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) lattice was used for PRRM, and a linearly chirped fiber grating (LCFG) was used as TTE. The basic principle was analyzed by using a Gaussian input short pulse and its characteristics were discussed by numerical simulation. It is shown that the proposed scheme is feasible for MMW signal generation and has potential merits for practical application of radio over fiber (ROF) technology.
