Abstract

Optical injection locking of a resonant tunneling (RTD) oscillator has been demonstrated using ultra short pulses from a mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser operating at a 1 GHz pulse rate. The source of optical signal is a mode-locked femtosecond laser whose optical frequency comb is phase-locked to a H-maser-stabilized frequency synthesizer. An exceptionally large capture range of more than 5 MHz is observed. The system produces stable microwave signals with low phase noise, which at 1 GHz is
