Paper Abstract

A time- and wavelength-interleaved (T- W-interleaved) optical pulse source based on optoelectronic oscillator is presented. By utilizing spectral slicing, a multi-loop configuration is formed in OEO system, which can effectively suppress side-modes. In addition, this configuration is able to generate multi-wavelength optical pluses which can be arranged T- W-interleaved optical pulse stream at different nodes. In this system, 10-ps-wide optical pulses at 5GHz repetition rate are generated with 1ps timing jitter (in the 100Hz-1MHz range) and -100dBc/Hz spurious modes suppression, Along with the optical outputs, 5GHz electrical signal with low phase noise (-113dBc/Hz at 10kHz offset from the carrier) is also obtained.
