Abstract
In this brief-article the effect of the number of taps on the quality (Q) for infinite- and finite-impulse-response microwave photonic filters (IIRMPFs and FIRMPFs) is analyzed. For FIRMPFs, an increas of Q with the number of taps from 2 to 10 is deduced by analyzing the free spectrum ranges with 3-dB bandwidths. For IIRMPFs, a pretty high Q can be realized when the product of the coefficient and the gain in the feedback loop equals 1. Our analytical results are verified by a typical IIRMPF structure based on a fiber Bragg grating (FBG), and the Q value can be increased up to 804 by using two FBGs with reflectivities of 50% and 99.5%, respectively.
