Abstract

We describe and demonstrate a novel technique for continuously tuning the frequency of a dual-loop-configuration optoelectronic rf oscillator. The rf tunability is obtained from a tunable diode laser and dispersive optical fibers. Results are presented for three ranges of frequency, centered at 550 MHz, 3 GHz, and 9 GHz. The frequency can be tuned electrically with constant rf power within a range of 0.1–1.9 MHz, depending on the center oscillation frequency. The tuning range can be increased eightfold through the use of highly dispersive fibers.
