A 30-GHz-band third harmonic optically injection-locked self-oscillating opto-electronic mixer is implemented with a 10-GHz InP heterojunction bipolar transistor monolithic microwave integrated circuit oscillator. The monolithic self-oscillating mixer can be optically injection locked in wide operating conditions and can perform efficient frequency up- and down-conversion with low-power optical local-oscillator signals. Using the mixer, bi-directional transmission of 32 quadrature amplitude modulation data in a 30-GHz fiber-fed wireless link is successfully demonstrated.
