Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


New photonic filter structures for interference mitigation of microwave signals are presented. These fiber filters have a parallel topology, and comprise a grating based photonic bandpass filter, or a dual offset cavity structure based on a new noncommensurate delay-line approach. The new topologies overcome the problem of synthesizing both a narrow stopband and a very-wide and flat passband, to simultaneously excise interference with minimal impact on the wanted signal over a wide microwave range. Results demonstrate stopbands of around 1% of center frequency, wide-hand flat transmission, and a shape factor of 10.5 that is the lowest reported for a photonic notch filter, in excellent agreement with predictions.
