Abstract

This work reports the performance of a wireless transmission link based on a radio access unit (RAU) implemented in photonic integrated circuit (PIC) form. The PIC contains a high speed photodiode for direct optical to RF conversion, monolithically integrated with a semiconductor laser, used as an optical local oscillator for up-conversion of the incoming 16-QAM-OFDM signal through heterodyning. Wireless transmission was demonstrated with a spectral efficiency as high as 3 bits/s/Hz at 60 GHz carrier and with 1.2 Gb/s transmission rate. Moreover, the RAU based on a broad bandwidth photodiode integrated with a tuneable laser allowed for a compact unit that could operate at carrier frequencies up to 100 GHz.
