Abstract
It is very important to generate high-speed optical synchronization signal for high speed computer. The rational harmonic (RH) modelocking scheme is a useful technology to generate pulses at a repetition rate higher than the modulation frequency. Such a technique can vary the clock rate of the synchronous optical signal in future high speed computer backplane for optical clock distribution. In this paper, we demonstrate an variable RH active modelocking light signal technique using a figure eight fiber cavity (F8C) incorporating a nonlinear amplifier loop mirror (NALM) using phase modulator to generate high repetition rate optical pulses above 10 GHz.
