Dynamic Microwave Photonic Filter Using Separate Carrier Tuning Based on Stimulated Brillouin Scattering in Fibers
Dynamic reconfiguration of a microwave photonic filter by tuning its basic delay based on stimulated Brillouin scattering-induced slow light and optical phase shift of the optical carrier is experimentally implemented. The measurements confirm that the free spectral range of the filter changes when a Brillouin pump is applied. These results demonstrate the potential of the separate carrier technique in microwave photonics applications.
