A photonic scheme to generate a phase-coded microwave signal with tunable carrier frequency based on a simple single-trip and two-pass structure is proposed. Facilitated by the fiber Bragg grating and phase modulator along the trip, both frequency doubling and signal phase coding could be achieved simultaneously. Phase-coded microwave signals at 20 and 22 GHz are experimentally generated.
