Plenary Talks at MWP2013

Tuesday 22 Oct 13

About Microwave Photonics

Microwave Photonics (MWP) is an inter-disciplinary field of study that concerns the interactions between microwave and optical waves for the generation, processing, control and distribution of microwave, millimeter-wave and THz-frequency signals. Microwave photonics serves as an enabling technology in a wide variety of applications such as high-speed wireless communication networks.
DTU Fotonik is prominently represented at Microwave Photonics 2013, the IEEE International Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics.  Prof. IdelfonsoTafur Monroy is delivering one of the three plenary talks.

World record

In 2011 the Metro-Access and Short Range Communications group of DTU Fotonik, achieved the world’s first record of 100 Gbps in wireless data transmission at the 75-110 GHz frequency band. This achievement is a result of several breakthroughs made in the group in microwave photonics techniques applied to wireless communications in combination with digital signal processing in optical coherent detection receivers.

Microwave photonics in Europe: status and perspectives

The plenary talk will, from the perspective of the research performed at Metro-Access group, present advances, status and perspective of microwave photonics research in Europe. The talk is entitled “Microwave photonics in Europe: status and perspectives”.
