Microwave Photonics Technology and Applications: Dr. Paul Juodawlkis [APhys Lecture]
Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 11:45am to 1:00pm
Applied Physics @ MIT hosts a talk by Dr. Paul Juodawlkis, Assistant Leader of the Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
Microwave Photonics Technology and Applications
Abstract: Microwave photonics involves the use of photonic technologies to generate, transmit, process, and detect microwave analog signals (i.e., few MHz to greater than 100 GHz) in ways that cannot be achieved using all-electronic approaches. In this talk, we will provide an introduction to microwave photonics, discuss some of the fundamental and practical limits of the performance of microwave photonic techniques, describe the state-of-the-art of components (e.g., lasers, optical modulators, signal processing photonic integrated circuits, and photodetectors) used in microwave photonic subsystems, and present some applications of the technology. Applications to be discussed include low-noise signal amplification and transmission, signal filtering, and ultralow-noise frequency generation.
