Abstract
ABSTRACT: This program creates an innovative approach to packaging high-power, high-frequency photo-detectors for use in RF photonics applications. We target 5-10 Watts of power at 100 GHz operation in a traveling wave configuration. The approach matches the electrical mode profile at the detector interface to the coax mode profile. BENEFIT: This program will create components that significantly outperforming electronic counterparts and at rendering photonic technologies overwhelmingly practical for application in antenna systems.
