Abstract

We discuss an approach for the practical implementation of photonic arbitrary waveform generation of microwave signals. We describe and demonstrate an approach using spatial-spectral (S2) holography in rare earth ion doped crystals that has the potential to achieve extremely wide bandwidths ( > 40 GHz ) using conventional electro-optic phase modulators and low bandwidth ( < 100 MHz ) control electronics. We provide analysis of this approach, show simulations, and perform experimental demonstrations of the technique. We show a pulse compression factor of 15,000 and demonstrate the largest effective bandwidth of 3.8 GHz to date for pulse compression using S2 holography. We also show control and manipulation of up to 30 independent compressed pulses for the creation of arbitrary waveforms.
