  1. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...
