Paper Abstract

A novel photonic technique of 60-GHz millimeter-wave subcarrier generation base on four-wave mixing effect in a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and a dual-frequency Brillouin fiber laser configuration is proposed. In this system, two new harmonic components with six times spacing of the microwave source frequency are created when an optical signal, generated by carrier-suppressed intensity modulation, is launched into the SOA. The two residual modulation sidebands are then suppressed by stimulated Brillouin scattering process, and the leaved idlers provide an millimeter-wave subcarrier signal.
