A 10.287 GHz optoelectronic oscillator is experimentally demonstrated that uses a 1000 finesse Fabry–Perot etalon as the mode selector instead of an rf filter. The results are compared with a standard optoelectronic loop with an rf filter. The substitution of the rf filter with the optical filter results in a higher rf stability and lower phase noise.
