We report the first experimental demonstration of millimeter-wave modulated optical signal generation by an optical injection phase-lock loop. A 36-GHz signal was generated by combining optical sideband injection locking with optical phase-lock loop techniques for two fiber-coupled DFB lasers. Single sideband noise spectral density of -92 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset, and phase-error variance lower than 0.005 rad/sup 2/ in a 100 MHz bandwidth were measured. The locking bandwidth exceeded 30 GHz.
