Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
We review recent work on broadband
RF channelizers based on integrated optical frequency Kerr micro-combs combined
with passive micro-ring resonator filters, with microcombs having channel
spacings of 200GHz and 49GHz. This approach to realizing RF channelizers offers
reduced complexity, size, and potential cost for a wide range of applications
to microwave signal detection.
