Photonic-wireless convergence for 5G and beyond
About the Speaker
Stavros Iezekiel received the B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in electronic and electrical engineering from the University of Leeds. From 1991 to 1993, he worked as a research fellow at Leeds on a project funded by M/A-COM, dealing with the development of high-speed photonic multi-chip modules. From 1993 to 2006, he was a member of the academic staff at the University of Leeds, where he led the research activity in microwave photonics and was also Deputy Director of the Institute of Microwaves and Photonics. During this period, 15 Ph.D. and 2 M.Phil. students graduated under his supervision, with many of them winning prizes and scholarships. In 1999 he was awarded the Measurements Prize of the IEE. Whilst at Leeds, he contributed extensively to the teaching activities, including the development of a degree programme in photonics that was sponsored by Agilent Technologies, and a one-year (2005-2006) period as Director of Learning and Teaching.Dr Iezekiel is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a Member of the Institute of Physics and a Chartered Physicist. Between 2000 and 2006 he was the UK Representative for Commission D (Electronics and Photonics) of URSI. He is highly active within the IEEE, having organised numerous IEEE-sponsored workshops and meetings, in addition to having been the Membership Development Officer for the IEEE UKRI Section between 1997 and 2001. Currently, he is a member of the MTT-11 (Microwave Measurements) Committee of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society and since 2009 has been on the Speakers Bureau Program for the same society. He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of IET Microwaves, Antennas and Propagation.Dr Iezekiel joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Cyprus, in 2006 as an Associate Professor. His research interests are in the general area of microwave photonics, and he has published over 100 papers and edited one book on the subject.
Compared to 4G, 5G will have more demanding requirements in terms of parameters such as latency, massive connectivity and enhanced mobile broadband. To meet these requirements, there will be a need to move to progressively higher frequencies in the mm-wave band. In this talk I will outline our latest work on photonic techniques (such as optoelectronic oscillators and optical combs) and their application to the generation of mm-wave and THz signals ranging from 38 GHz to 240 GHz.
The presentation will be in English.
