Abstract

We demonstrate a stable and linear photonic radio frequency (RF) phase shifter based on a differential-group-delay element and the polarization sensitive effect of an optical phase modulator. The phase shift can be tuned continuously over 360 ° for RF signals over 40 GHz with an electrical control voltage from 7.5 to + 7.5 V .
