Abstract

An all-optical optoelectronic oscillator is demonstrated in which a novel Brillouin-selective sideband amplification technique is used to provide sufficient gain for the oscillator to start and sustain electro-optic oscillation. Such an oscillator can generate high-frequency, high-spectral-purity, tunable microwave signals in both optical and electrical domains beyond 100  GHz.
