Abstract

We demonstrate a novel W-band photonic transmitter mixer, which is composed of a planar quasi-Yagi radiator for feeding a WR-10 waveguide-based horn antenna and a near-ballistic unitraveling-carrier photodiode. The module demonstrates reasonable coupling loss in terms of the millimeter-wave (MMW) power launched from the integrated radiator into the WR-10 waveguide. With the bias-modulation technique and an optical MMW source, we can successfully achieve a wireless data transmission of 2.5-Gb/s quadrature phase shift keying at a carrier wave frequency of 102.5 GHz with a transmission distance of over 2.3 m.
