Abstract

This work presents an integrated microwave photonics splitter with reconfigurable amplitude, phase, and delay offsets. The core components for this function are a dual-parallel Mach–Zehnder modulator, a deinterleaver, and tunable delay lines, all implemented using photonic integrated circuits. Using a demonstrator with an optical free spectral range of 25 GHz, we show experimentally the RF splitting function over two continuous bands, i.e., 0.9–11.6 GHz and 13.4–20 GHz. This result promises a deployable solution for creating wideband, reconfigurable RF splitters in integrated forms.
