Microwave photonics is an interdisciplinary area. that studies the interaction between microwave and. optical signals, for applications such as broadband wireless. access networks, sensor networks, radar, satellite communications, instrumentation, and warfare systems. The optoelectronic systems make the transmission and processing of microwave signals, while the development of high-capacity optical communication systems has required the use of microwave techniques in optical transmitters and receivers.
