Abstract

The authors demonstrate the optical generation of extremely narrow linewidth millimetre-wave signals between 40 and 60GHz using a single-chip semiconductor laser. A dual-mode long-cavity multisection DFB semiconductor laser is driven at a subharmonic of the free-running-mode brat signal frequency to produce phase-locked millimetre waves with a 3dB linewidth of less than 10Hz and a 3dB locking range of similar to 500MHz.
