Generation of 40 GHz and 60 GHz Optical Pulses by Repetition Rate Multiplying with Comb-like Filter
The comb-like filter characteristic of a Fabry-Perot etalon in frequency domain was deployed to filter out the discrete spectral lines of injected 10GHz optical pulse train. By changing the free spectral range and obtaining the spectral components spaced to 4 and 6 times of the repetition rate, the pulse trains with 40 GHz and 60 GHz were successfully obtained.
