Optoelectronic oscillator incorporating hollow core photonic bandgap fiber
We demonstrate the first Optoelectronic oscillator that uses Hollow-Core Photonic Bandgap Fiber (HC-PBGF) as a delay element of a sufficient length to allow for low-noise operation. We show experimentally that HC-PBGF can improve the temperature stability of the oscillator by a factor of more than 15 as compared to standard optical fiber. We also measured the oscillator’s phase noise, allowing evaluation of the suitability of HC-PBGF for this application. Additionally this work also provides the first characterization of the temperature stability of a long length (>800 m in our study) of low-thermal sensitivity (2 ps/km/K) HC-PBGF wound on a spool.

Abstract

We demonstrate the first Optoelectronic oscillator that uses Hollow-Core Photonic Bandgap Fiber (HC-PBGF) as a delay element of a sufficient length to allow for low-noise operation. We show experimentally that HC-PBGF can improve the temperature stability of the oscillator by a factor of more than 15 as compared to standard optical fiber. We also measured the oscillator’s phase noise, allowing evaluation of the suitability of HC-PBGF for this application. Additionally this work also provides the first characterization of the temperature stability of a long length (>800 m in our study) of low-thermal sensitivity (2 ps/km/K) HC-PBGF wound on a spool.
