abstract

  • The use of surface-transverse-wave (STW) resonator-based oscillators as amplifiers and as carrier recovery elements is discussed. It is demonstrated that these oscillators can amplify phase-shift-keyed signals with very little added noise, while providing a constant output power. Their performance in carrier recovery amplifications is analyzed. Experimental results showing the amplification with more than 80 dB of dynamic range of a 2 Mb/s BPSK signal and the carrier recovery of an 8 Mb/s signal with a 1-GHz STW oscillator are shown.
