Abstract

A broadband microwave mixer is demonstrated based on an integrated optical micro-comb source, with an operation bandwidth up to over 60 GHz, a conversion efficiency of -6.8 dB and a spurious suppression ratio of over 43.5 dB, and experimentally verify the RF performance up to 40 GHz. This approach to realizing microwave mixers offers reduced complexity, size, and potential cost for a wide range of applications to microwave systems.
