Abstract

A novel (to our knowledge) and flexible photonics-based downconversion scheme is proposed for wireless receivers in base stations. It allows simultaneous detection of multiple signals at carriers up to tens of gigahertz, enabling communications at millimeter waves. Experiments demonstrate the effective downconversion of Wi-Fi signals at 2.4 and 39.8 GHz with the error vector magniture <43dB.
