Microwave Photonics A comprehensive resource to designing and constructing analog photonic links capable of high RF performance.Fundamentals of Microwave provides a comprehensive description of analog optical links from basic principles to applications. The book is organized into four parts. The first begins with a historical perspective of microwave listing the advantages of fiber optic links and delineating analog vs. digital links. The second section covers basic principles associated with microwave in both the RF and optical domains. The third focuses on analog modulation formats—starting with a concept, deriving the RF performance metrics from basic physical models, and then analyzing issues specific to each format. The final part examines applications of microwave , including analog receive-mode systems, high-power photodiodes applications, radio astronomy, and arbitrary waveform generation.
