Paper Abstract

We report the results of the optical generation of microwave signals superimposed as a modulation on an optical carrier by means of laser heterodyning. The modulated optical carrier can be easily distributed with fiber-optic cables. This approach offers microwave distribution advantages in size, weight, cost, and frequency diversity, which are desirable in improtant applications such as phased antenna control.
