Integrated microwave photonics is an emerging interdisciplinary subject that takes advantage of optical devices and systems to perform microwave signal generation, manipulation and transmission tasks in a compact, integrated and scalable manner. At the heart of almost all microwave photonic systems sits the electro-optic (EO) modulators, which are responsible for faithfully encoding signals from the microwave to the optical domain. During this process, the modulation linearity and bandwidth are two key metrics that ultimately determine the signal fidelity and operation frequency range of the microwave photonic link. Recently, Dr. Wang’s team has designed and realized two new integrated lithium niobate modulators that offer two orders of magnitude improvement in modulation linearity and bandwidths covering the entire microwave and millimeter-wave bands (up to 300 GHz), respectively, opening new avenues for future integrated microwave photonics with applications in 6G networks, optical communications, as well as remote sensing and ranging systems.

Due to their great performance and cheap production cost, perovskite solar cells have great potential as a future energy technology. However, due to the difficulties in scaling up from small-scale laboratory devices to large-scale modules or panels required for commercial usage, researchers are finding it difficult to bring this potential photovoltaic technology into commercial use.
