Abstract

This session presents new and innovative works investigating microwave, millimeter wave, and Terahertz photonic enabled systems. The session starts with a silicon photonic integrated beamformer in a phased array RF imaging system. Next we examine photonic-enabled Terahertz phased arrays based on dielectric rod waveguides. This is followed by a 1-bit digital radio-over-fiber system for uplink and downlink communications and an ultra-wideband modular RF front-end for a photonic-enabled imaging receiver. The session closes with presentations on a wideband frequency hopping radio link based on microwave photonics and the generation and distribution of RF signals using a tuned optical paired laser source.

Abstract

This session discusses state-of-the-art microwave photonic and electronic techniques to generate, amplify and radiate mm-wave and sub-THz signals. The first paper discusses sub-THz signal generation with very low linewidth using asymmetric locking of two lasers. The second paper describes broadband optical frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) signal generation using hybrid electronic-photonic techniques. The third paper is about widely tunable, photonically assisted, RF-sub-THz signal generation with frequency independent phase noise. The fourth paper achieves microwave signal amplification using injected semiconductor lasers. Finally, the last paper covers design and implementation of an on chip topological filter antenna operating at 300 GHz.

Remote sensing of human vital signs such as heartbeat or respiratory rate will become increasingly important in an aging society. This session will present interesting radar concepts tailored to these tasks by discriminating the vibrations on the body surface from random body movements to the respective vital signs under monitoring. All papers will present ideas that enable hardware structures with reduced complexity compared to conventional approaches. The session will focus on the specific system and hardware aspects of self-injection locking radar. In addition, a sophisticated proposal for metamaterials for space-time encoding will also be presented.

This session showcases five papers in the area of reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RIS), antennas, and beamformers. The first paper presents an 8-GHz 32x32-element RIS to enhance non-line-of-sight (NLOS) communications. The second paper introduces a 16x16 RIS array at 28 GHz, adopting a phase randomization technique introduced to suppress lobes. The third paper presents a 11-port wire antenna capable of beam steering from 5-18 GHz. The fourth paper explores a space-time-modulated metamaterial antenna, functioning as a beam-space multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) receiver. The last paper presents a fully-passive, 4-channel RF beamformer at 12 GHz for power-constrained applications.

Abstract

This session is focusing on advancements in microwave biomedical applications. It will notably present innovative orientations of MRI systems featuring STAR using wearable RF transceiver and investigating MR safety with active implantable medical devices. Moreover, an in-body microwave thermometry concept will be discussed with a focus on RF interference cancellation. Finally, the electroporation effect will be explored in combination with microwave biosensing.

Abstract

This session is comprised of papers that present advanced circuits and techniques for next-generation wireless systems. Discussion topics include active calibration for MIMO transmitters, a load-modulated balanced amplifier with an antenna interface, an analog self-interference canceller that mitigates tap loss, an integrated full-duplex front end at 75-100 GHz, and a 130 GHz OOK-doubler circuit heterogeneously integrated with a glass antenna for scalable array systems.
