The past few years have seen accelerated developments in the area of quantum computing. Some of the most viable quantum computing technologies are intimately related to microwave theory and techniques. This session will bring to the Microwave Symposium some of the key contributors of the microwave qubit community, in an effort to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in this field and inspire fruitful interactions between this community and MTT-S.
While RF/mmW amplifiers are key elements in modern wireless communications and DoD applications, current RF/mmW amplifier performance has approached near saturation and current practice in amplifier designs requires a trade-off between linearity and efficiency. With 5G on the horizon and DoD RF systems moving to the millimeter-wave regime, novel RF/mmW transistor technologies with extreme linearity and efficiency are highly desirable. This focused session will cover emerging mmW transistor technologies toward 5G wireless applications and DoD applications.
