Microwave Photonics / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
Microwave photonics is an important interdisciplinary field that,amongst a host of other benefits, enables engineers to implementnew functions in microwave systems.
With contributions from leading experts, Microwave Photonics:Devices and Applications explores this rapidly developingdiscipline. It bridges a gap between microwave and photonicengineering, providing an accessible interpretation of the currentavailable research material and a detailed introduction to variousaspects of the area.
Opening with an overview to the subject, this book covers directmodulation, photonic oscillators for THz signal generation, andterahertz sources. It takes a unique application- focused approachand describes:
- analogue fibre-optic links;
- fibre radio technology;
- microwave photonic signal processing;
- measurement of microwave photonic components, and;
- biomedical applications.
This text is ideal for practising microwave and fibre opticscommunication engineers wishing to improve their knowledge, and forresearchers and graduate students wanting an overview of thesubject.
