Call for Papers

Announcing the Joint Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on
Microwave Theory and Techniques
and the IEEE/OSA Journal
of Lightwave Technology
on Microwave Photonics
Submission Deadline: January 1, 2010


The Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques and the IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology invite manuscript submissions in the area of Microwave Photonics. This special joint issue will focus on the diverse, multidisciplinary field of microwave photonics and will be sent to subscribers of both journals. Microwave photonics focuses on interactions between the optical and the microwave portions of the electromagnetic spectrum, where here the term “microwave” encompasses all frequencies from 10 MHz to 10 THz. This Special Issue will treat recent progress in microwave photonics including experimental studies, theoretical investigations, numerical modeling, and applications. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

  1. Devices, Components and Sub-systems
    – High-speed, wideband and linear photonic devices & optically controlled microwave
    – Integration and packaging of photonic and microwave components and circuits
    – Microwave bandwidth optical transmitter, receiver, and signal processing subsystems

  2. Techniques and Links
    – Photonic generation, distribution, sensing, detection, processing, filtering, and control
       of microwave signals
    – High-speed photonic analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion
    – Analog, digital and subcarrier multiplexed microwave photonic links
    – Optical frequency metrology and control

  3. Systems and Applications
    – Photonic technology for phased array antenna systems and antenna remoting
    – Broadband wireless over fiber systems and networks
    – Ultra-fast optical probing, imaging, and measurements
    – Technologies for emerging applications (biomedical, ultrawideband, terahertz, quantum
       communications, etc.)

The deadline for submission of manuscripts is January 1st, 2010 and publication is scheduled for the November 2010 issue.
Authors may contact Dalma Novak [d.novak@ieee.org] for more information. Instructions for submission of papers can be found at http://www.mtt.org/publications/Transactions/transactions.htm. In addition, authors must add “(T-MTT/JLT Special Issue)” to the subject line of the e-mail submission.
