Abstract

In this study, we demonstrate wireless binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) and quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) data transmission at the W-band by use of bias modulation on photonic transmitters-mixers, which are composed of near-ballistic uni-traveling-carrier photodiodes and quasi-Yagi antennas without the integration of an Si-lens. By use of such a device and a novel optical millimeter-wave source with octupling optical frequency, we can successfully achieve 1.25-Gb/s BPSK and 0.625-Gb/s QPSK data-transmission at 105 GHz with 5-GHz intermediate-frequency signals.
