Abstract

This paper presents the first demonstration of a uni-travelling carrier photodiode (UTC-PD) used as a receiver of a wirelessly transmitted quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) signal. In this demonstration, a 1 Gbaud QPSK signal centered at 33.5 GHz was transmitted over a wireless distance of 1.4 m. At the receiver, a UTC-PD is used to down-convert the RF signal to an intermediate frequency (IF) of 9.5 GHz by mixing the RF signal with a heterodyne signal at 24 GHz. The down-converted signal is captured by a real time digital oscilloscope for further digital signal processing. The error vector magnitude (EVM) of the demodulated signal was measured to be 18%, which corresponds to a bit error rate (BER) of 10-8.
