Paper Abstract

Lasers capable of greater than 20 GHz modulation rates are available today. Extending the usable frequency range can be accomplished with planar transmission line technology and broadband design techniques. Above about 25 GHz, planar transmission line approaches such as finline, dielectric image guide, and microguide should be considered. As for tackling microwave circuit designs, a combination of available approaches, design equations, and the Smith chart constitute the basic analysis and synthesis tools. As circuits increase in complexity, or greater accuracy is required, the use of computer-aided engineering software for optimization and even layout verification is often used to reduce laboratory time.
