The 16th International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks ICTON 2014 will focus on the applications of transparent and all-optical technologies in telecommunications, computing and novel applications. This year it will be hosted at the TUGraz, Austria, July 6-10, 2014, with the technical co-sponsorship by the IEEE Photonics Society.
VLC Photonics founder Pascual Muñoz will be presenting a talk entitled “Integrated microwave photonics: State of the art and future trends”. The paper reviews the current status of microwave photonics chips. The salient realizations from the different players in the field are summarized, both from the technology and application perspectives. An outlook towards the realization of advanced microwave photonics chip signal processors is given.
