Abstract

An opto-electronic oscillator based on guided acoustic wave Brillouin scattering in a photonic crystal fiber (PCF) stimulated by a light wave in 1 μm band is proposed and demonstrated. A short length of a homemade PCF stimulated by relatively low pump power leads to strong coupling between the pump and probe waves. The oscillation is realized in a feedback loop, in which the acoustic wave bridges the pump and probe. Oscillation is achieved at 1.237 GHz, which matches the resonance of the acoustic mode, in a single-longitudinal-mode operation of the hybrid cavity. It has a high side mode suppression ratio of over 60 dB.
