The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is exploring advances in non-linear optics and integrated photonics in support of the development of microwave oscillators that potentially meet the compact-size, tuning and robustness requirements while staying in ultra-low-noise level. The fundamental limits of photonic microwave generation will be the focus of the second research area.Read More »
A program managed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) uses miniaturized chip components to generate optical frequencies in small, compressed forms. DARPA said Thursday it launched the Direct On-Chip Digital Optical Synthesizer or DODOS effort in 2014 to propagate the use of optical frequency synthesizers, a technology that generates frequency-precise lasers.Read More »
