    Research on millimeter waves and/or terahertz waves, which cover the frequency range from 30 GHz to 10 THz, has lately increased since the nature of these electromagnetic waves is well suited to spectroscopic sensing as well as ultrabroadband wireless communications. One of the obstacles to developing applications of millimeter waves and terahertz waves is a lack of solid-sate signal sources, rath... View full abstract»

    Our studies have shown that a digitized radio- over-fiber system based on bandpass sampling with an analog-to-digital converter having a resolution of 8 b is sufficient to construct a high-performance, cost-effective link that can allow easy integration of wireless backhaul with optical communication infrastructure. We also show that the performance of the digitized system is predominantly limited... View full abstract»

    High-voltage AlGaN/GaN HFETs can produce high RF output power with nearly ideal power-added efficiency. But widespread adoption of these HFETs has been limited by a lack of acceptable reliability data for practical communications and radar applications. Device problems that have been observed include dc current and RF output power degradation as a function of time when the device is operating. Sud... View full abstract»

    It is generally well accepted that photonic technology, along with the low-loss, electromagnetic interference (EMI)-free and wide bandwidth signal transport of optical fiber, offers the potential for providing new capabilities, significant performance improvements, as well as design flexibility to analog radio frequency (RF) and microwave systems. The growing spectral demands of current defense sy... View full abstract»

    B: y now, most readers have probably become very familiar with the refrain that "there is no overall risk of brain tumors with cell phone use; however, for long-term cell phone users, results need to be confirmed before definite conclusions can be drawn." Therein lies the dilemma; is there or isn't there a risk of brain tumors? View full abstract»
