Microwave photonics continues to see rapid growth. The integration of optical fiber and wireless networks has become a commercial reality and is becoming increasingly pervasive. Such hybrid technology will lead to many innovative applications, including backhaul solutions for mobile networks and ultrabroadband wireless networks that can provide users with very high bandwidth services. Microwave Photonics, Second Edition systematically introduces important technologies and applications in this emerging field. It also reviews recent advances in micro- and millimeter-wavelength and terahertz-frequency systems.

The book features contributions by leading international researchers, many of whom are pioneers in the field. They examine wave generation, measurement, detection, control, and propagation in detail, as well as the devices and components that enable ultrawide-band and ultrafast transmission, switching, and signal processing. These devices and components include optical-controlled microwave devices, optical transmitters, receivers, switching devices, detectors, and modulators. The book explores the theory, techniques, and technologies that are fueling applications such as radio-over-fiber, injection-locked semiconductor lasers, and terahertz photonics. Throughout, the contributors share insights on overcoming current limitations and on potential developments.

"The book presents all parts and aspects of the area of microwave photonics, providing recent R&D results and their applications. It covers the key trends in the field, including the integration of wireless standards into novel optical architectures in particular to support high-bandwidth mobile backhauling, the support of the emerging distributed antenna standards, and techniques for enabling dynamic capacity and mobility management in converged optical/wireless networks. This way the book is useful for researchers, system engineers and also students."
-Tibor Berceli, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary

"This timely edition on microwave photonics is crucial for the further advancement on the ever-increasing need of communication technologies. Both the wireless local area network and fiber optics based long-haul communications have benefitted from the fast-growing microwave photonics. This new edition is urgently needed for the experts to catch up with the latest developments, and at the same time, it is also convenient for the general reader to taste the wide variety of modern microwave photonics technologies."
-Sheng-Lung Huang, National Taiwan University

"The book offers a broad view of the microwave photonics blooming field. The partition in chapters written by the most active researchers permits to give an accurate state of the art in many parts of the field. Broad and accurate, I think this book will be very useful for engineers and researchers entering the field."
-Prof. M. Brunel, Universite de Rennes 1, France
