Abstract:We investigate a way of generating an RF local oscillator (LO) signal by means of optical heterodyning of two lasers. This LO signal will be used to down-convert a Ku-Band(10.7 GHz12.75 Ghz)RF signal from a phased array antenna (PAA) to an intermediate frequency 950 MHz to 3 GHz) at the mixer. In this paper we have modeled the laser spectrum perturbed by phase noise. In addition, we analyze the impact of the lasers phase noise on the quality of the gererated LO by optical heterodyning.
