Abstract

We successfully demonstrate ultrafast frequency sweep signal generation using the double-sideband suppressed carrier modulation technique with a high-extinction-ratio optical modulator that helps realize clear signals with no filters. The resultant sweep rate was achieved at 3.67 × 10 16 Hz / s with an extinction ratio above 25 dB , which corresponds to a bandwidth of 11 GHz with a pulse duration of 300 ns .
