Abstract

We present a wireless link system that uses millimeter-wave (MMW) photonic techniques. The photonic transmitter in the wireless link consists of an optical 120-GHz MMW generator, an optical modulator, and a high-power photonic MMW emitter. A uni-traveling carrier photodiode (UTC-PD) was used as the photonic emitter in order to eliminate electronic MMW amplifiers. We evaluated the dependence of UTC-PD output power on its transit-time limited bandwidth and its CR-time constant limited bandwidth, and employed a UTC-PD with the highest output power for the photonic emitter. As for the MMW generation,we developed a 120-GHz optical MMW generator that generates a pulse train and one that generates sinusoidal signal. The UTC-PD output power generated by a narrow pulse train was higher than that generated by sinusoidal signals under the same average optical power condition, which contributes to reducing the phtocurrent of the photonic emitter. We have experimentally demonstrated that the photonic transmitter can transmit data at up to 3.0 Gb/s. The wireless link using the photonic transmitter can be applied to the optical gigabit Ethernet signals.
