Deep learning scheme for microwave photonic analog broadband signal recovery

by   Shaofu Xu, et al.

In regular microwave photonic (MWP) processing paradigms, broadband signals are processed in the analog domain before they are transformed to the digital domain for further processing and storage. However, the quality of the signals may be degraded by defective photonic analog links, especially in a complicated MWP system. Here, we show a unified deep learning scheme that recovers the distorted broadband signals as they are transformed to the digital domain. The neural network could automatically learn the end-to-end inverse responses of the distortion effects of actual photonic analog links without expert knowledge and system priors. Hence, the proposed scheme is potentially generalized to various MWP processing systems. We conduct experiments by nontrivial MWP systems with complicated waveforms. Results validate the effectiveness, general applicability and the noise-robustness of the proposed scheme, showing its superior performance in practical MWP systems. Therefore, the proposed deep learning scheme facilitates the low-cost performance improvement of MWP processing systems, as well as the next-generation broadband information systems.
