Paper Abstract

In this paper we present an end-to-end system model for passive millimeter wave (mmW) imaging system based on an optical up-conversion process. Due to the complicated nature of the system, accurate and efficient model of such a system becomes extremely challenging. To this end, we establish a mathematical model to bridge all component and subsystem models together to complete the system performance evaluation. The subsystem models through theoretical simulation and experimental measurement provide accurate input for overall system performance evaluation. The developed tools have been used for the validation our First-Ever demonstrated passive mmW imager at 35 GHz and excellent agreement has been achieved between the simulation and experimental results.
