Abstract

Harmonic signal generation and frequency upconversion at millimeter-wave bands are experimentally demonstrated by using selective sideband Brillouin amplification induced by stimulated Brillouin scattering in a single-mode fiber. The harmonic signals and frequency upconverted signals are simultaneously generated by the beating of optical sidebands, one of which is Brillouin amplified. By using this method, we successfully demonstrate generation of third-harmonic millimeter waves at 32.55GHz with fLO of 10.85GHz and upconversion of 10Mbps quadrature-shift keyed data at fIF of 1.55GHz into a 30GHz band with more than 17dB RF power gain.
