Two D-band SiGe BiCMOS TRX ICs operating at 115-155GHz and 135-170GHz, respectively, are presented. The ICs can deliver Psat >13dBm and have a measured average NF of 8dB. A 1-meter 150-GHz wireless TX-link with a 64-element antenna-on-glass module of >20 dBi gain is demonstrated. Measured 256-QAM 8/16Gb/s (EVM = 3.8/5.3%) and 64-QAM 12/18 Gb/s (EVM = 5.7/7.4%) are also achieved. The Systemon-Glass (SoG) modules are intended for spectrally-efficient wireless backhaul in dense urban environments.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

  • Saniee I.
  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
