Microwave Photonics (MWP) is an emerging field, in which radio frequency (RF) signals are generated, distributed, processed and analyzed using the strength of photonic techniques. It is a disruptive technology which enables various functionalities which are not feasible to achieve only in the microwave domain. In the recent years microwave photonics has successively found itself in the applications such as broadband wireless access networks, sensor network, radar, satellite communications, instrumentation, and warfare systems, and currently there is an increasing effort in researching new microwave and milimeter-wave signals.
