Paper Abstract

This paper reviews some recent developments of high-speed millimeter-wave photonic components and their application in millimeter-wave fiber-wireless systems. In particular, this paper is concerned with waveguide transceiver elements designed for simultaneous modulation and photodetection at mm-wave frequencies, where the transceiver concept is based upon electroabsorption in multiple-quantum wells. The fabrication procedure of such 1.55 micrometers electroabsorption transceivers (EAT) on InP substrates in briefly reported and the successful employment of mm-wave EATs in a 60-GHZ fiber- wireless network is demonstrated. Furthermore, a 60-GHz mm- wave band point-to-point fiber-wireless link architecture employing an EAT is presented and full-duplex broadband transmission within the 60-GHz band is experimentally achieved.
