Congratulations to Tin for demonstrating a novel idea to make a very stable arbitrary microwave frequency generator!

News Date

We demonstrate a technique to precisely control and stabilize the beat frequency of a photonic microwave signal generator based on beating the optical signals of two lasers on a high-speed photodetector. The approach does not require high-speed electronic circuitry, but allows the control of the generated signal frequency up to hundreds of GHz. The demonstrated technique can readily be integrated on a chip-scale device using heterogeneous silicon platform, opening possibilities for widespread use in signal generation, sensing, instrumentation, and communications.
