    The activities of the Telecommunication Engineering (TE) group span the communications spectrum from copper cables, optical fibres, microwaves, radio and electromagnetic compatibility. Our research concentrates on optical signal processing and networks, mobile communications, microwave techniques and radiation from ICs and PCBs [1]. A considerable (and particularly interesting) part of it is related to optical beam forming for phased array antennas, using optical ring resonators. In this article the theoretical basics and practical challenges of this interesting research topic will be summarized.
