Paper Abstract

Microwave photonic mixer is a potential solution for wideband information systems due to the ultra-wide operating bandwidth, high LO-to-RF isolation, the intrinsic immunity to electromagnetic interference, and the compatibility with exsiting microwave photonic transmission systems. The spurious response of microwave photonic mixer cascading in series a pair of Mach-Zehnder interferometric intensity modulators has been simulated and analyzed in this paper. The low order spurious products caused by the nonlinearity of modulators are non-negligible, and the proper IF frequency and accurate bias-controlling are of great importance to mitigate the impact of spurious products.
