Abstract

Generation of cw-THz waves with high frequency accuracy was demonstrated by using a Mach-Zehnder-modulator-based flat comb generator (MZ-FCG). A combination of the MZ-FCG and a highly nonlinear dispersion shifted fiber generated broadband optical combs, and cw-THz waves in the range of 3 THz were generated by photonic down-conversion of two-tone signals extracted from the broadband combs.
