Abstract
Tunable clocks targeting 10GHz through greater than 70GHz are optically generated, distributed and interfaced into an array of one or more cyrogenic, electronic operating environments. Design criteria include exceptionally low jitter and skew between clocks presented to each array element (less than 10FS RMS). Use of single-mode, optical fiber technology supports arrays distributed across 600 meters or more.
