In this webinar hosted by the OSA Nonlinear Optics Technical Group, Dr. David Marpaung will discuss how ton-chip nonlinear optical processes can be harnessed for enhanced microwave photonic signal processing. The discussion will introduce basic concepts and requirements of microwave photonic systems and define the range of physical problems that can be addressed wit nonlinear optics.

The webinar will then introduce and explain a selection of nonlinear optical processes that have been explored for RF photonic signal processing, such as stimulated Brillouin scattering and four-wave mixing. A number of recent experiments, including their outcomes, will be discussed and the webinar will conclude by addressing the outlook and future trends in the field.

What You Will Learn:

  • Basic microwave photonic links and systems and on-chip nonlinear processes for RF photonics.

Who Should Attend:

  • Individuals interested in the field of microwave photonics
  • Researchers who want to learn about on-chip nonlinear processing of RF signals
