Abstract

Highly selective and reconfigurable microwave filters are of great importance in radio-frequency signal processing. Microwave photonic (MWP) filters are of particular interest, as they offer flexible reconfiguration and an order of magnitude higher frequency tuning range than electronic filters. However, all MWP filters to date have been limited by trade-offs between key parameters such as tuning range, resolution, and suppression. This problem is exacerbated in the case of integrated MWP filters, blocking the path to compact, high-performance filters. Here we show the first chip-based MWP bandstop filter with ultrahigh suppression, high resolution in the megahertz range, and 0–30 GHz frequency tuning. This record performance was achieved using an ultralow Brillouin gain from a compact photonic chip and a novel approach of optical resonance-assisted RF signal cancellation. The results point to new ways of creating energy-efficient and reconfigurable integrated MWP signal processors for wireless communications and defence applications.

SBS-based integrated microwave photonic filter. (a) Artist’s impression of a future monolithic-integrated high-suppression and reconfigurable SBS MWP filter in a silicon chip. VOA, variable optical attenuator; TW-DPMZM, traveling wave dual-parallel Mach–Zehnder modulator; Ge-PD, germanium high-speed photodetector. (b) The schematic shows the topology of the microwave photonic filter reported here. An optical modulator was used for RF-modulation spectral synthesis, while stimulated Brillouin scattering in a chalcogenide waveguide was used as a reconfigurable optical filter. (c) In the novel cancellation filter near-phase modulation signals (opposite-phase, unequal-amplitude sidebands) were generated and processed using SBS gain spectrum, leading to a highly selective filter. (d) In the conventional filter, a single-sideband spectrum was generated and processed using the SBS loss/absorption spectrum, resulting in a filter with low selectivity.

Microwave photonic filter experiments. (a) Pump-probe experimental setup for filter performance evaluation, including distributed feedback laser (DFB), 90° RF hybrid coupler (Hybrid), dual-parallel Mach–Zehnder modulator (DPMZM), erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA), polarization controller (PC), photodetector (PD), and vector network analyzer (VNA). (b) Optical spectrum measurement of input RF-modulated signal for the conventional single-sideband (SSB) filter. (c) Optical spectrum input for the cancellation filter, yielding near-phase modulation with unequal-amplitude sidebands. (d) Corresponding VNA traces depicting filter responses for the conventional SSB and cancellation filters. For the same low pump power (8 mW), the SSB filter yields 0.8 dB suppression, while the cancellation filter yields 55 dB suppression.

Frequency agility of the filter. (a) Stopband center frequency tuning. Filter suppression was kept above 51 dB in all measurements. (b) Bandwidth tuning from 32 to 88 MHz was achieved by means of tuning the pump power to vary SBS gain and loss. (c) Filter response at the extremes of the bandwidth tuning range.

High-resolution RF filtering experiment. Two RF signals with 20 MHz frequency separation were used at the filter input. (a) Filtering with conventional single-sideband scheme with 17 dB SBS loss as optical filter. Peak attenuation at the unwanted interferer tone was 17 dB, and signal attenuation was 9 dB. (b) Filtering with the cancellation filter using 4 dB of SBS gain. Complete reduction of unwanted interferer was observed with low attenuation of the desired signal (2 dB).
