The generation of a 40-Gb/s 16-QAM radio-over-fiber (RoF) signal and its demodulation of the wireless signal transmitted over free space of 30 mm in W-band (75-110 GHz) is demonstrated. The 16-QAM signal is generated by a coherent polarization synthesis method using a dual-polarization QPSK modulator. A combination of the simple RoF generation and the(More)
Efficient generation and detection of indistinguishable twin photons are at the core of quantum information and communications technology (Q-ICT). These photons are conventionally generated by spontaneous parametric down conversion (SPDC), which is a probabilistic process, and hence occurs at a limited rate, which restricts wider applications of Q-ICT.

By combining a Mach-Zehnder-modulator-based flat comb generator (MZ-FCG) with a dispersion-flattened dispersion-decreasing fiber, femtosecond pulses have been generated from a cw light. Near-Fourier-transform-limit picosecond pulses generated from the MZ-FCG were compressed into femtosecond order by pulse compression. Our system enables flexible tuning of(More)
We are developing a low noise superconducting heterodyne receiver based on a hot electron bolometer mixer (HEBM) and a THz Quantum Cascade Laser (THz-QCL) as a local oscillator at 3THz for atmospheric and astronomical observations. The best value of the uncorrected receiver noise temperature of 1,200 K (DSB) which corresponds to 8 times quantum limit was(More)
Generation of cw-THz waves with high frequency accuracy was demonstrated by using a Mach-Zehndermodulator-based flat comb generator (MZ-FCG). A combination of the MZ-FCG and a highly nonlinear dispersion shifted fiber generated broadband optical combs, and cw-THz waves in the range of 3 THz were generated by photonic down-conversion of two-tone signals(More)
The broadband wavelength tunability of femtosecond pulse generation using a Mach-Zehnder-modulator-based flat-comb generator (MZ-FCG) and a dispersion-flattened dispersion-decreasing fiber (DF-DDF) was demonstrated. Near-Fourier-transform-limit picosecond pulses generated from the MZ-FCG were compressed into femtosecond pulses by adiabatic soliton(More)
