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

Future 6G wireless systems and beyond will support communications, sensing, and positioning at multiple spectrum bands. Novel networking architectures will be required to achieve performance, resiliency, and flexibility for deployment of the antenna and related radio frequency (RF) hardware on fixed locations and vehicles for the radio access network. Deployment of a massive number of low SWaP-C picocells for coverage and flexible locations is a complex challenge that will strain the conventional base station, microcell, and even the O-RAN architectures, especially when applied to mm-wave and sub-THz spectrum bands at > 100 GHz. Does analog photonic have a role in meeting these challenges? If so, what and what are the key bottlenecks to implementation? This focus session tackles this question and will feature diverse technical perspectives (all-electronic, digital photonic, analog photonic and hybrid) from academia, industry and government labs.

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.

Abstract

Next-generation RF/mmW systems are of great interest in supporting high data rate communications, which include future 5G FR3 and millimeter-wave 5G FR2 and 6G mobile networks. These RF networks can potentially deliver 10 Gbps or higher and backhaul communications with > 50 Gbps. Since E/D/G-band can also support multi-GHz bandwidths, there is also growing interest in mmW phased-array implementations.

This focused session will cover emerging high-performance Silicon and III-V RF/mmW technologies toward 5G/6G wireless applications and DoD applications with speakers from both commercial (Global Foundries and Intel) and Defense (DARPA, Northrop Grumman, HRL) sectors.

Abstract

In this session, we report exciting progress on integrated passive devices in GaN and Si technologies. For example, a novel high-power limiter based on GaN Schottky barrier diodes demonstrates a record 39-ns recovery time at 100 W. Two new GaN digital step attenuators exhibite an ultrawide bandwidth of 40-220 GHz. Meanwhile, a V-band voltage-controlled distributed attenuator based on 65-nm CMOS technology achieves an attenuation range higher than 1000 dB/mm2 for the first time. Finally, a new electrically balanced duplexer based on a tunable passive auto-transformer in the 65-nm CMOS technology demonstrates 30-dB isolation at 60 GHz with a 19-GHz bandwidth.

Abstract

Couplers are one of the most important microwave passive components and thus are ubiquitous in balanced amplifiers, mixers, and beam-forming networks for antenna arrays. This session presents the recent advancements in design methodologies for state-of-the-art couplers. Initially, novel design platforms including substrate- or metal-integrated suspended lines will be presented to reduce the dielectric and conductor losses in couplers. Next, investigations into architectures including multi-section transformers will be discussed to widen the coupler bandwidths. Finally, industrial coupler prototypes utilizing the InP HEMT MMIC process for highly-integrated chipsets will be presented. Together, these papers aim to build an ecosystem of next-generation couplers with attractive performance such as low loss and wide bandwidth.

Abstract

This memorial session will pay tribute to Professor John W. Bandler by recognizing his seminal contributions and visionary perspective on CAD techniques for RF and microwave modeling and automated design optimization. Invited outstanding collaborators will provide an overview of Prof. Bandler’s main technical achievements and contributions, combined with personal anecdotes and photos highlighting memorable events and interactions. Joint technical developments to be reviewed include analysis methods for the response sensitivities of microwave circuits, including efficient electromagnetics (EM)-based S-parameters sensitivity calculations for accurate design and image-reconstruction; the port‐tuning version of space mapping for efficient EM-based analysis and design; cognition-driven design for microwave filter optimization; advanced industrial microwave design problems in satellite systems; space mapping techniques for efficient post-manufacture tuning of microwave hardware; smart combination of artificial neural networks and space mapping for EM-based design optimization, statistical analysis, and yield optimization of microwave circuits; as well as interesting analogies between space mapping and artificial intelligence (AI) approaches. Potential future directions will also be ventured regarding the relationship between cognitive science and engineering design, involving promising deeper integration of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and space mapping.

Abstract

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.

Abstract

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.

It will start with a benchmark design of high-efficiency PAs in 250nm and 130nm InP HBT technologies at 220GHz, followed by a low-noise PA for the WR4.3 and WR3.4 bands in a 35nm InGaAs mHEMT technology. The next presentation from the session will talk about another InGaAs mHEMT PA covering 270-320GHz in a compact footprint. Next, analysis and design of a differential complex neutralization will be discussed, based on which a PA at D-band is implemented for efficient and linear applications. The session will be concluded with a presentation on a 10-230GHz InP distributed amplifier using Darlington quadruple-stacked HBTs.
