Paper Abstract

The filtering properties of a continuously tunable single-passband microwave photonic filter based on stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) are investigated. The filter utilizes the advantage of combining phase-modulated RF signal and dual-sideband suppressed-carrier pump signal to achieve the SBS-based tunable narrowband filtering. The effects of pump power on the out-of-band rejection (OBR) and 3-dB bandwidth, the optical fiber structure on the resonant sideband, and input RF signal power on the OBR and 3-dB bandwidth are analyzed theoretically and experimentally. The results show that the pump power has the potential of increasing the OBR and tuning 3-dB bandwidth, whereas the RF signal power has nearly no influence on the two parameters.
