Description - Microwave Photonics by Stavros Iezekiel
The convergence of microwave and photonic engineering is an area of increasing interest and research. Photonics bring new functions to microwave systems such as long delay lines, fast spectrum analysis, frequency conversion, probing and control of microwave devices, low phase noise oscillators and ultra-fast analog to digital converters. Conversely, microwave techniques are enabling new generations of optical communication systems with capacities exceeding 1Tb/s/fiber. Associated with the evolution of these systems is the development of high-speed optical sources, modulators and detectors with bandwidths extending into the millimeter-wave region.
* Addresses the growing need for a text in this key area of development * Provides a broad overview of this developing subject area, providing an accessible interpretation of the available research material * Bridges the gap between microwave engineering and photonic engineering * Presents microwave engineers with the means to understand the potential of the application of photonic techniques in microwave systems With international contributors providing a broad coverage of this dynamic new field Microwave Photonics will appeal to both practicing microwave and fibre optics communicaton engineers and researchers as well as graduate level engineering students new to the field of microwave photonics.
