Paper Abstract

Optical heterodyne carriers have been generated by mixing the stimulated Brillouin scattered light generated from optical fiber ring resonators. The first technique mixes the SBS generated from two separate resonators to produce a carrier in the 200 - 400 MHz region. For this system a temperature coefficient of the carrier frequency of approximately 5 MHzK-1 was obtained. The second technique mixes the two SBS signals produced from the orthogonal polarization eigenmodes of a ring resonator constructed from high birefringence fiber. A carrier frequency of 11.68 MHz was obtained with a temperature coefficient of 6.7 kHz K-1.
