Abstract

Recent advances in photonic integration have propelled microwave photonic technologies to new heights. The ability to interface hybrid material platforms to enhance light-matter interactions has led to the developments of ultra-small and high-bandwidth electro-optic modulators, frequency synthesizers with the lowest noise, and chip signal processors with orders-of-magnitude enhanced spectral resolution. On the other hand, the maturity of high-volume semiconductor processing has finally enabled the complete integration of light sources, modulators, and detectors in a single microwave photonic processor chip and has ushered the creation of a complex signal processor with multi-functionality and reconfigurability similar to their electronic counterparts. Here we review these recent advances and discuss the impact of these new frontiers for short and long term applications in communications and information processing. We also take a look at the future perspectives in the intersection of integrated microwave photonics with other fields including quantum and neuromorphic photonics.
