We propose to use an extended electro-optic interaction between the two guided-wave IR beams in a nonlinear optical waveguide as the method for generation of polarization at the difference RF frequency. The electro-optic interaction is fast and the distributed waveguide interaction enables high efficiencies and higher total power. In addition, use of fiberoptics and integrated optics enables local generation of RF beams from the remotely located IR sources.
