Paper Abstract

Techniques for generating a 35GHz millimeter-wave signal in a microstrip circuit fabricated on GaAs using one or two lasers locked to sidebands of a single master laser will be presented. Ring resonator circuits have been modelled and characterized for achieving efficient output. Varactor diodes were implemented into the circuit for electronic tuning. Stable laser sources have been developed with frequency stability of 20 to 100 MHz. Strong FM sidebands have been produced with a laser diode.
