New STSM of Dávid Kóbor, from Budapest University of Technology and Economics (Hungary) to University of Cyprus (Cyprus)

Dávid Kóbor: “I have spent 6 weeks in the laboratory of Stavros Iezekiel in Nicosia to investigate the recent developments in the field of opto-electronic oscillators. We have investigated multiple different concepts and architectures, such as class AB photonic links, and self-adaptive microwave photonic bandpass filters. I had the chance to work with a lot of talented professionals and learn from them.”

New STSM of Nada Badraoui, from Budapest University (Hungary) to University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany).

The 5G mobile network deployment goal is to provide 1-10 Gb/s wireless signal for the end user. For that purpose, polarization multiplexing (POL-MUX) can be utilized to double the bandwidth efficiency. At these bit rates, the polarization mode dispersion (PMD) becomes very problematic as a bit rate limiting factor. It influences the polarization cross talk and polarization extinction ratio (PER). We propose the application of…

New STSM of Kyriakos Neophytou, University of Cyprus (Cyprus) to University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany).

Kyriakos Neophytou, a Ph.D. student from the University of Cyprus (Cyprus) has recently visited the Institute of Optoelectronics at the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany) during 48 days, under the supervision of Prof. Andreas Stöhr. The purpose of the STSM was to investigate the implementation of backscattering Mobile Terminals (MTs) to an all-photonic FMCW system in order to simultaneously identify and locate the MTs. The experiments…
