Microwave photonic solutions for modern radar/antenna systems

Summary

This project aims to realize arbitrary, high-resolution photonic signal processors, which exhibit low-noise operation. Specially, we investigate new concepts for generating a large number of different wavelengths at precise frequencies, and new topologies to solve the inherently difficult problem of suppressing the dominant noise source. The outcome is a new microwave photonic signal processor that has wideband adaptive in-built signal conditioning to address different interferers actively within optical fibre.

Synopsis

With new optical devices and photonic techniques have been developed to overcome the limited functions for electronic analog and digital circuits implemented in the radar/antenna systems, microwave photonics has expanded to address a considerable number of applications including high-performance analog microwave photonic fibre links for modern radar/antenna systems.  We target the design of new microwave photonic signal processor used in modern radar/antenna systems for interlinking the antenna signals and suppressing interferences picked up by the antenna while transmitting the wanted RF signal with low noise.
