Abstract

The impact of laser coherence noise on conventional photonic RF filters is investigated in this paper. In addition, a new microphotonic adaptive RF filter structure is proposed, which can simultaneously suppress the phased-induced intensity noise caused by optical interference. Results show that the coherence length of the laser light significantly degrades the RF frequency response of a photonic transversal RF filter, whereas the microphotonic RF filter has the capability of generating arbitrary transfer function with no phase-induced intensity noise
