Abstract
A novel scheme for the generation and stabilization of the millimeter-wave (mmW) signal is theoretically analyzed and experimentally demonstrated. By using the microwave photonics frequency-quadrupling technology and phase-locked optoelectronic oscillator, we generate the millimeter-wave signal with low phase noise and high stability without the frequency limitation of the electrical phase detector and the voltage-controlled microwave phase shifter. Finally, a 40-GHz mmW signal with the stability of 1.38 × 10−12 at the average time of 100 s is generated. The spurious suppression ratio reaches 97 dB, and the measured single-sideband phase noise is lower than -103 dBc/Hz at 10-kHz offset frequency.
