Abstract
A coherence-free and reconfigurable filter based on semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. A high coherent RF-modulated light source is converted to an incoherent light source by employing the cross-gain modulation of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) of the SOA. The inversely modulated ASE is sliced by an optical wavelength demultiplexer to realize a stable transversal microwave filter. Reconfigurability of the filter can be achieved by controlling the number and apodization of the taps. The filters with two, three and four taps are experimentally demonstrated.
