Photonic integrated circuits for 5G-and-beyond networks: enabling the mmWave band and beyond with InP-based photomixers in integrated transceivers

31 January 2023 • 8:45 AM - 9:00 AM PST | Moscone Center, Room 216 (Level 2 South)

Abstract

Photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are one of the key enablers for beyond 5G networks. A novel generation of fully integrated photonic-enabled transceivers operating seamlessly in W- D- and THz-bands is developed within the EU funded project TERAWAY. Photonic integration technology enables key photonic functionalities on a single PIC including photonic up/down conversion. For efficient down-conversion at the photonic integrated receiver, we develop the first waveguide-fed photoconductive antenna for THz communications. Finally, we report on the experimental implementation of a fully photonic-enabled link operating across W- D- and THz-bands.
