WS Microwave Photonics

Microwave photonics




Antonella Bogoni, CNIT, Italy,

Ivana Gasulla, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain,




This workshop aims at emphasizing new applications of photonics in RF communication systems. It will highlight the issues of current wireless communications, the role that photonics can play in overcoming these issues and enabling a novel paradigm of software-defined multiprotocol radio systems. The workshop wants to represent a significant overview of the state of the art of radio-over-fiber systems and subsystems as well as available technologies for optical devices in these applications. Moreover the workshop wants to envisage the future development of microwave photonics in the industrial perspective.
