Recently we have reported the dev electronically-steered Ku-band (10.7-12.75 G antenna system employing an integrated photonic beamformer, which is intended to be applied on high-speed transport vehicles for mobile reception of digital video broadcasting via satellite signals (1). Besides the advantages such as light weight, small size and immunity to electromagnetic interference, the photonic beamformer provides another two disinguishing features in the antenna system: squint-fee and seamless beam steering over a large instantaneous bandwidth, which in this case is the aforementioned Ku-band (1).
