Wireless communications approaching mmWaves (28GHz - 150GHz) carrier frequency will be key enabling technologies for 5G/6G, radars, ultrastable frequency references. This applications will require very high-speed devices mixers capable of enabling the implementation of such networks and sensors.
In this proposed demo, the attendee will have the opportunity to see first-hand an advanced mm-wave optoelectronic set-up demonstrating ~100 GHz radio link implemented by photomixing in a graphene photonic integrated circuit.
The course will be divided in two parts:
- A theoretical part, in the morning, in which the attendees will have an overview on graphene optoelectronics and related applications, with focus to graphene-based microwave photonics.
- A practical part, in the CNIT PNTLab, in which the graphene-based wireless link demonstrator will be shown, discussed and the attendee will be involved in a hands on experience.
