Abstract:

This report provides an overview of the available technology and standard techniques for millimeter-wave photonics at frequencies up to 110 GHz. Measured data for commercial electro-optic phase modulators, electro-optic intensity modulators, p-i-n photodiodes and waveguide photodetectors are presented. These data are analyzed utilizing typical link gain equations. Multiplexing techniques, which are not trivial with W-Band modulation, are described
