Abstract

We demonstrate narrowband orthogonally polarized optical RF single sideband generation as well as dual-channel equalization based on an integrated dual-polarization-mode high-Q microring resonator. The device operates in the optical communications band and enables narrowband RF operation at either 16.6 GHz or 32.2 GHz, determined by the free spectral range and TE/TM mode interval in the resonator. We achieve a very large dynamic tuning range of over 55 dB for both the optical carrier-to-sideband ratio and the dual-channel RF equalization.
