Paper Abstract

Techniques for generating microwave/millimeter-wave signal in a monolithic resonant ring circuit are described. The microwave signal can be generated by focusing modulated light into a photoconductive microstrip gap or by mixing two sideband locked lasers at the photodiode. Varactor and PIN diodes can be integrated inside the ring for frequency tuning and power switching.
