Abstract

Gain-switched and mode-locked semiconductor lasers have been considered as potential optical soul ces for the generation of microwave and millimetre-wave signals. High frequency harmonics can be obtained from these pulsed semiconductor lasers to transport information, overcoming the bandwidth limitation of direct and external modulation schemes. An understanding of the causes that degrade the noise performance of microwave harmonic signals generated by these sources is presented.
