    The period 1946–1961 was a special era for microwave tubes, just after WWII, up until invention of the laser. Low noise, broadband, high power, high efficiency, from 60 MHz to 300 GHz, all done without modern computers (IC’s invented in 1959). The major universities and industrial...

    By combining an electrical parasitics model and a laser equivalent circuit model in a microwave circuit simulator, nonlinear laser transmitter operations are simulated. Harmonic generation through gain switching a laser is used as an example of nonlinear operation to experimentally verify the...

    We introduce a novel concept for optical frequency measurement and division which employs a Kerr-lens, mode-locked laser as a transfer oscillator whose noise properties do not enter the measurement process. We experimentally demonstrate that this method opens up the route to phase-link signals...

    A new microwave switch, the light-activated microwave photoconductive switch consisting of a heterostructure photoconductive switch (HPCS) with a flip-chip bonded vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser is reported. An insertion loss of 0.17 dB at a laser power of 15 mW and an isolation of 25 dB...
