Paper Abstract

A low phase noise optoelectronic source has been developed operating at 10 GHz. Custom surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices operating at high frequency and high acoustic power have been developed and are used as the critical element in an optical phase locked loop. Improved performance could be attained via lasers with larger control loop bandwidths. The source is antenna remoteable via the use of optical fibre and is compact and lightweight, suggesting applications in phased array radar.
