At a gala dinner on the 5th of October, COM•DTU PhD´student Darko Zibar recieved the Microwave Photonics Best Student Paper Reward for his work on Novel optical phase demodulator based on a sampling phase-locked loop. The demodulator is capable of operating at high-frequencies, by using optical sampling to downconvert the high-frequency input RF signal to the frequency range of commercially available A/D convertrs. Darko performed the work as a visiting researcher at the University of California, Santa Barbara under guidance of Prof. John E. Bowers.  However, there was a close collaboration with groups led by Larry Coldren, Mark Rodwell and Larry Lembo (Northrop Grumman Space Technologies).   


Microwave Photonics (MWP'2006) is the most prestigious conference in the scientific field of microwave-photonics systems, devices and applications. It provides a forum of recent advances on this multidisciplinary research area. The conference was this year held in Grenoble, France. To recognize the originality and the quality of research work as well as the presentation skill the Technical Program Committee of MWP'2006 every year selects the best oral talk and poster paper. The reward results in prize of 400 euros.
