Present and future applications of analogue microwave photonics

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractAcademic

Abstract

Photonics may be even more suited for analog than for digital signal applications. Today, microwave photonics techniques are currently used in radio-over-fibre signal transmission and other commercial applications, but recent advances are widening the scope of application to new areas. The speakers will introduce present and emerging opportunities for analog photonics, among which microwave filters, arbitrary optical waveform control, THz radiation and UWB pulse generation. A panel discussion will contrast different views from company, academy and funding bodies, to identify the most promising ones for commercial applications as well as the challenges and research opportunities to be pursued to make it reality.
