This special issue covers all topics in the field of microwave photonics, a special issue for the 2019 IEEE International Topical Conference on Microwave Photonics (MWP’2019). Microwave photonics is concerned with the use of photonic devices, systems and techniques for applications in microwave, millimeter, and THz wave engineering, and also encompasses the development of high-speed photonic components for microwave system applications. The field is continuing to experience significant growth, fueled by the recent interest and development in integrated microwave photonics and microwave/millimeter-wave photonics for 5G applications and beyond.
Topics include (but are not limited to): High-speed optoelectronic devices, Integrated microwave photonics, Photonic techniques for microwave signal generation and distribution, Photonic microwave processing, sensing, and measurements, THz techniques and applications, Radio over fiber techniques, fiber-wireless communications, and 5G, Innovative applications of microwave photonics (astronomy, traffic and automotive, electronic warfare, radar, medicine and health care, etc.)
