Abstract

We demonstrate the generation of ultrastable millimeter-wave carriers from a passively mode-locked monolithic DBR laser injection locked by a double sideband suppressed carrier modulated optical signal. We investigate the effect of the optical power and the wavelength of the injection signal on the phase noise of the generated millimeter-wave carrier. Once locked, the laser can track the variations in the beat frequency of the injected millimeter-wave signal over an RF frequency range of approximately 172 MHz.
