About Oewaves

OEwaves was founded in 2000 to commercialize a family of technologies developed at Jet Propulsion Lab for NASA. OEwaves' core technology, the Opto-Electronic Oscillator (OEO), far surpasses the phase noise performance of conventional high frequency oscillators by at least three orders of magnitude. OEwaves' devices offer both military and commercial communications systems high accuracy measurement and detection, higher speed transmissions, and reduced design complexities.

Tunable Opto-electronic Oscillator Based on Photonic Integration of Ultra-High Q Resonators on a SiN Chip

Dec 30, 2020

Award Information Branch: N/A Award End Date (Contract End Date):2018-06-08 Small Business Information DUNS:N/A Davis, CA, 95618-6153 Abstract The team comprising OEwaves Inc. and UC Davis offers to develop and demonstrate a SiN-platform integrated photonic circuit suitable for a spectrally pure chip-scale tunable opto-electronic RF oscillator (OEO) that can operate as a flywheel in high precision optical clock modules, as well as radio astronomy, spectroscopy, and local oscillator in radar and communications systems. The effort comprises integration of an ultra-high quality (Q) crystalline whispering gallery mode (WGM) microresonator with multiple lithographically defined photonic and electronic components and devices (including a laser, a detector and waveguides) on a single platform with nanometer-scale feature sizes. The proposed oscillator will be packaged in a volume of approximately 1cc, with net power consumption of less than 500 mW. The oscillator will produce a minimum of 10 mW of output RF power in Ka frequency band, and its single sideband (SSB) phase noise will be as low as -60 dBc/Hz at 10 Hz, and -160 dBc at 1 MHz and higher Fourier frequencies. * Information listed above is at the time of submission. *
