Abstract: This work demonstrates the feasibility of optical millimeter-wave signal generation using frequency 12-tupling. Optical millimeter-wave signal with two sixth-order optical sidebands are generated using frequency quadrupling optical millimeter-wave generation along with optical four-wave-mixing. 210- and 120-GHz two-tone optical signals with optical carrier and undesired harmonic distortion suppression ratios of 20 and 30 dB are experimentally demonstrated. The proposed system provides an attractive method for millimeter-wave applications such as optical up-conversion in radio-over-fiber (RoF) communication systems at millimeter-wave band, phase-array antennas, optical sensors, radars, and tera-hertz applications.
