Abstract


A report is presented on the photonic synthesis of ultra-narrow linewidth continuous-wave (CW) sub-THz signals using a gain-switching (GS) based optical frequency comb generator (OFCG), selective optical filtering and a n-i-pn-i-p superlattice photomixer. This setup provides continuous tunability with a tuning resolution in the range of 0.1Hz at 120GHz and full width at half maximum of the generated signals below the limits of the measurement setup (<10Hz). The advantages of this system make it a very good candidate for applications requiring extremely low phase noise and continuous tunability, such as high resolution spectroscopy in the sub-THz and THz range. © 2012 The Institution of Engineering and Technology.
