A novel technique for generating narrow-linewidth microwave or millimeter-wave signals is proposed. In this scheme, a delayed self-injected distributed Bragg reflector laser diode, which is tuned by a low-frequency square-wave voltage, is used to generate two correlated lightwaves simultaneously. Experiments show that the 10-dB linewidth of generated microwave signals is reduced from 147 MHz to 68 kHz utilizing the proposed self-injection technique.
