Abstract

We present theoretical and experimental results for a novel oscillator that converts continuous light energy into stable and spectrally pure microwave signals. This optoelectronic oscillator can generate ultrastable spectrally pure microwave reference frequencies as high as 75 GHz with a phase noise lower than −140 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz, independent of oscillation frequency.
