"... covers the key trends in the field, including the integration of wireless standards into novel optical architectures in particular to support high-bandwidth mobile backhauling, the support of the emerging distributed antenna standards, and techniques for enabling dynamic capacity and mobility management in converged optical/wireless networks. This way the book is useful for researchers, system engineers and also students." —Tibor Berceli, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary

"This new edition is urgently needed for the experts to catch up with the latest developments, and at the same time, it is also convenient for the general reader to taste the wide variety of modern microwave photonics technologies." —Sheng-Lung Huang, National Taiwan University

Microwave photonics continues to see rapid growth, with the integration of optical fiber and wireless networks now a commercial reality. This book systematically introduces key technologies and applications in microwave photonics, ranging from micro- and millimeter-wave to terahertz frequencies. Leading researchers share insights on overcoming current limitations and on future directions. Updated to reflect advances in the field, this edition includes new chapters on fiber Bragg gratings and ultrawide-band sub-THz photonic wireless links.
