Abstract
This paper presents the proposal and experimental demonstration of a microwave photonic bandpass filter structure based on a multiwavelength semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) ring laser, an optical phase modulator, and a segment of single-mode fiber as a dispersive element. Experimental results show multiple-tap microwave photonic bandpass filter by using a power-equalized multiwavelength SOA ring laser as the optical source. Two laser configurations, one with a linearly chirped fiber Bragg grating (LCFBG) to compensate the dispersion of the laser cavity and one without the LCFBG, are compared for their multiwavelength laser outputs and the corresponding microwave photonic bandpass filters' response. The two microwave photonic bandpass filters have free spectral ranges (FSRs) ~1.26 GHz and 1.85 GHz. The maximal main-to-secondary sidelobe ratio of the microwave filter is above 10 dB.
