Abstract
A novel microwave photonic notch filter structure is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The structure is based on a recirculating delay line loop consisting of an optical variable delay line, a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and a tunable narrowband optical filter. Negative tap is generated using wavelength conversion based on cross-gain modulation of amplified spontaneous emission spectrum of the SOA. A narrow bandpass response with negative coefficients and a broadband all-pass response are combined to achieve a narrow notch response with flat passband which can eliminate interference with minimal impact on the expected signal. Experimental results show good agreement with theoretical analysis.
