SIlicon Optomechanical optoellectronic Microwave Oscillator

Project description

Silicon-photonics microwave oscillators closer to commercialisation

High-quality microwave sources are useful in multiple applications, including radars, wireless networks and satellites. In particular, optoelectronic oscillators boast many advantages compared to their electronic counterparts, such as immunity to electromagnetic interference, low weight, compactness and long-distance transport. The EU-funded SIOMO project aims to commercialise a silicon-photonics optoelectronic microwave oscillator based on cavity optomechanics that was recently demonstrated in the PHENOMEN project. This microwave oscillator, which does not feed back into itself, demonstrates remarkably low noise figures at gigahertz frequencies.
