Abstract

The design of an eight-channel 25 µs wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) microwave photonic delay line is described. The performance of the delay line was studied by measuring the temperature dependent relative phase drift between channels and the interchannel crosstalk. A simple method for measuring the maximum phase errors produced by the interchannel crosstalk is described and used to measure the maximum error on a channel in this system. The use of polarization interleaving and dispersion compensation to reduce the effects of crosstalk in the system is examined experimentally.
