Photonic Integration for RF Photonics Systems Photonic integration on the Silicon Photonics platform, together with heterogeneous integration to include other materials, provides an ideal platform for the development of complex photonic integrated circuit (PIC) devices. This talk will describe the requirements for basic RF Photonics systems, including low noise lasers, linear modulators, low loss optical processing elements, and high power photodetectors, followed by descriptions of devices and PICs that Morton Photonics is developing for these functions.
The talk will describe how a high performance PIC including arrays of these devices can be utilized for the processing of a phased array sensor to provide Multiple-Channel Simultaneous RF Beamforming, and describe potential commercial markets for these technologies, including automotive LIDAR systems, analog photonic links and RF Beamforming for 5G systems
