An Antenna Array for Photonic Beam Switching in Mm-Wave Wireless Communications.

Abstract : We present a photonic transmitter at E-band for beam switching in mm-wave wireless links. First, we discuss the trade-offs between beam switching and beam steering with arrays of photonic transmitters. Then, the designed transmitter is presented; it includes two 2×2 sub-arrays of stacked patches fed independently by two photodiodes. The transmitter is placed at the focal plane of a PTFE lens to increase the overall gain. Excitation of either sub-array allows 1D beam witching between ±2.7º for accurate beam alignment or reconfigurable links.
