Abstract

We report a broadband RF channelizer based on an integrated optical frequency Kerr micro-comb source, with a potential RF channelizing bandwidth of 90 GHz, and a high spectral slice resolution of 1.04 GHz, and experimentally verify operation up to 19 GHz. This approach to realizing RF channelizers offers reduced complexity, size, and potential cost for a wide range of applications to microwave signal detection.
