Measuring Absolute and Additive Phase Noise of Pulse-Modulated Signals

Phase noise is an important parameter for the performance of a radar system. Most radars employ pulse modulation, and the velocity of the target is derived by detecting the Doppler shift of the radar’s reflected signal relative to the frequency of the transmitter. The transmitter’s own phase noise strongly affects the resolution and accuracy of this measurement, limiting the detection threshold and accuracy of the radar. Therefore, the phase noise of pulsed signals has become an increasingly important measurement.
