ECE 531: RF Photonics
Photonics technologies for radio frequency applications. Principles of radio frequency (RF) photonics are illustrated through their applications in advanced radar, wired/wireless communications, and electronic sensing. Key RF photonics devices including lasers, high frequency modulators, photodetectors, amplifiers and passive circuitries are discussed. System applications including advanced radar system, radio over fiber, and millimeter wave/THz signal generation and processing are considered and analyzed.
