Abstract

A novel polarization-modulator-based complementary frequency shifter (PCFS) has been proposed and then used to implement the generation of a frequency-locked multicarrier with single- and dual-recirculating frequency shifting loops, respectively. The transfer functions and output properties of PCFS and PCFS-based multicarrier generator have been studied theoretically. Based on our simulation results through VPItransmissionMaker software, 100 stable carriers have been obtained with acceptable flatness while no DC bias control is required. The results show that the proposed PCFS has the potential to become a commercial product and then used in various scenarios.
