BPN700: Generation of Low Phase Noise mm-Waves

Abstract There has been recent interest in low noise mm-wave signals for satellite data communication and RADAR. For these applications, close in to the carrier phase-noise performance is important. Several competing very-low-phase-noise oscillator technologies exist at lower microwave frequencies. All of these face difficulties in being extended up to the new bands of interest. We propose using an optical frequency comb generator together with an optical interleaver to up convert the low noise, low frequency microwave signal to the desired high frequency bands without increasing the phase noise significantly.
