About

Henrique M. Salgado graduated in Applied Physics (Optics and Electronics) from the University of Porto in 1985 and received the PhD degree in Electronic Engineering and Computer Systems from University of Wales in 1993. He joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computers of the University of Porto in 1999 as an Invited Assistant Professor and in 2003 he became Associate Professor. Since 1995 that he heads the Optical and Electronics Area of INESC TEC, begin responsible for several national and internationally funded (EU) research projects. From 1997-1999 he was Research Fellow at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the University College London, UK and previously Research Assistant at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Systems, Bangor, UK. He is the author and co-author of numerous international publications in the field of optical fibre communications and microwaves. His current research interests include: radio-over-fiber technology and microwave photonics, digital equalization in coherent optical systems, all-optical networks, modeling of nonlinearities and design of compact multiband antennas. He is a member of the Photonics and Communications societies of the IEEE.

Resonant tunneling diode photodetectors for optical communications

Authors

Publication

Abstract
Optical modulation characteristics of resonant tunneling diode photodetectors (RTD-PD) are investigated. Intensity modulated light excites the RTD-PDs to conduct data experiments. Simple and complex data patterns are used with results showing data rates up to 80 and 200 Mbit/s, respectively. This is the first demonstration of complex modulation using resonant tunneling diodes. © 2019 The Authors. Microwave and Optical Technology Letters published by Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Meander-Line Monopole Antenna With Compact Ground Plane for a Bluetooth System-in-Package

Authors

Publication
IEEE ANTENNAS AND WIRELESS PROPAGATION LETTERS

Abstract
In this letter, a packaged compact meander-line monopole antenna for Bluetooth communications, manufactured in low-density fan-out technology, is presented. A combined size for the antenna and ground plane of 0.1 lambda(0) x 0.06 lambda(0) x 0.008 lambda(0) is obtained. Such small antennas are usually designed considering their connection to an evaluation board with a large ground plane, which improves their gain and bandwidth, but in this letter, the antenna is designed so it can work standalone without any further connection to printed circuit boards. The challenge of designing such a compact antenna is surpassed by performing a detailed modeling of the radiating meander-line element altogether with its finite ground plane, a tuning inductor, and an inductive coupling feed. The antenna model is developed in Ansys HFSS using the finite element method, which is later validated experimentally. Measurements of the return loss radiation pattern are carried out, and final results show a -6 dB bandwidth of approximately 110 MHz and a gain of -8.7 dBi, at 2.42 GHz.

Abstract
The performance of Resonant Tunnelling Diode (RTD) oscillators with an optical window is evaluated experimentally, in the transmission of advanced modulation formats using electrical and optical modulation, for the first time. Additionally, the impact of phase noise in the transmission performance is also assessed. © 2018 IEEE.

Abstract
The high permittivity of InP substrates has been a limiting factor for the bandwidth and efficiency of antennas fabricated in this material. In this manuscript we propose an elliptical monopole, monolithically fabricated in InP, fed by a CPW line. The suggested topology was simulated using HFSS finite element method. Input reflection coefficient measurements were performed on the monopole to validate the proposed antenna. Simulated and measured -10 dB bandwidths of 27 and 24 GHz were obtained, respectively. The peak simulated efficiency and realized gain were 95.37% and 4.6 dBi.
