Optics Express Focus Issue

Microwave Photonics

Accepting Submissions: 1 March 2013
Submission Deadline: 1 June 2013

This Focus Issue, which will comprise invited papers only, will be based on research contributions in the field of Microwave Photonics (MWP) a discipline which brings together the worlds of radio-frequency engineering and optoelectronics. MWP has attracted great interest from both the research community and the commercial sector over the past 30 years and is set to have a bright future. MWP brings several added values which stem from the fact that, on the one hand, it enables the realization of key functionalities in microwave systems that either are complex or even not directly possible in the radio-frequency domain and, on the another hand, that it creates new opportunities for information and communication (ICT) systems and networks.

Topics covered in this special issue include on one hand devices aspects from the two main technology options currently available (Fiber and integrated optic platforms) and on the other, systems and applications including; fiber-wireless and optical wireless telecommunication systems, arbitrary RF and ultra-wideband waveform generation, Microwave signal processing and filtering, Terahertz photonics.

Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to Optics Express and must be uploaded through OSAs electronic-submission system - http://www.opticsinfobase.org/oe/journal/oe/author.cfm. When submitting, please specify that the manuscript is for the Microwave Photonics focus issue (choose from the drop-down menu). All accepted papers will be held such that the entire focus issue can be published on or near the target publication date (1 September 2013).
