Photonic integrated circuit signal sources for millimetre wave wireless links

Objectives: The main objective is to develop photonic integrated circuits to generate millimetre wave carrier frequency for ultra-broadband wireless links based on the optical heterodyne technique, using fully monolithic mode-locked laser structures with phase tuning sections.

Expected Results: On-chip data modulation and optical filtering schemes that combined with the mode-locked laser produce a tunable source with the phase noise characteristics of a mode locked laser that can generate carrier waves in bands allocated to wireless communications, 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz.
