The technical staff of PSI has published some seminal works that helped establish the fields now generally known as microwave photonics and phased array antenna remoting. Here is a partial list of these works, some of which may be downloaded in .pdf format by clicking on the title.*



M. Phillips and M. Regan, "Enhancement of microwave optical link gain byself-phase modulation in a fiber interferometer," IEEE Photon. Technol. Lett., vol. 20, pp. 2174-2176, December 2008.

E. Ackerman, W. Burns, G. Betts, J. Chen, J. Prince, M. Regan, H. Roussell, and C. Cox, "RF-over-fiber links with very low noise figure," J. Lightwave Technol., vol. 26, pp. 2441-2448, August 2008.

"Linearized optical modulator with fifth order correction,"
by W. Burns in J. Lightwave Technol., vol. 13, August 1995 - establishes a method for extending the spurious-free dynamic range of analog optical links by canceling all 3rd- and 5th-order distortion products.

"Input impedance conditions for minimizing the noise figure of an analog optical link,"
by E. Ackerman et al. in IEEE Trans. Microwave Theory Tech., vol. 46, December 1998 - reports a fiber-optic link with record low amplifierless noise figure: 2.5 dB

"Linearized modulator for suboctave-bandpass optical analog link,"
by G. Betts in IEEE Trans. Microwave Theory Tech., vol.42, December 1994

"An analytic and experimental comparison of direct and external modulation in analog fiber-optic links," by C. Cox et al. in IEEE Trans. Microwave Theory Tech., vol. 38, May 1990 - reports the first amplifierless fiber-optic link to exhibit microwave gain

"Techniques and performance of intensity-modulation, direct-detection analog optical links," by C. Cox et al. in IEEE Trans. Microwave Theory Tech., vol. 45, August 1997 - establishes theoretical limits to the analog performance of fiber-optic links
