Paper Abstract

In this work we report the photonic generation of microwave signals for distributing point to point analog TV signals by using microstrip antennas. The experimental setup is based on optical heterodyne technique where two optical waves at different wavelengths are mixed and applied to a photodetector. The microwave signal obtained by using this technique is used in a wireless communication system for transmitting and receiving analog TV signals.
