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.

Patch antenna-in-package for 5G communications with dual polarization and high isolation

Authors
Santos, H; Pinho, P; Salgado, H;

Publication
Electronics (Switzerland)

Abstract
In this paper, we describe the design of a dual polarized packaged patch antenna for 5G communications with improved isolation and bandwidth for K-band. We introduce a differential feeding technique and a heuristic-based design of a matching network applied to a single layer patch antenna with parasitic elements. This approach resulted in broader bandwidth, reduced layer count, improved isolation and radiation pattern stability. The results were validated through finite element method (FEM) and method of moments (MoM) simulations. A peak gain of 5 dBi, isolation above 40 dB and a radiation efficiency of 60% were obtained. © 2020 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

Design of an Anechoic Chamber for W-Band and mmWave

Authors
Pinho, P; Santos, H; Salgado, H;

Publication
ELECTRONICS

Abstract
In this paper, we describe the design of an electrically large anechoic chamber for usage on millimetre-wave bands. Ansys Savant sotware was used to perform a simulation of the chamber, using physical optics coupled with uniform theory of diffraction (PO/UTD). Moreover, a method based on an open waveguide probe is described in this paper to obtain the electrical properties of the RF absorbers at millimetre-wave frequencies. Two different source antennas were simulated in this work and the corresponding quiet zones predicted. The largest quiet zone was 30 mm x 30 mm x 50mm, for a chamber size of 1.2 m x 0.6 m x 0.6 m.

LASER diode-based transmitter module for optical wireless communications

Authors
Araujo, JH; Kraemer, R; Santos, HM; Pereira, F; Salgado, HM; Pessoa, LM;

Publication
2020 12th International Symposium on Communication Systems, Networks and Digital Signal Processing, CSNDSP 2020

Abstract
In this paper, we present the design of an analog transmitter based on a blue LD targeting optical wireless communications, suitable for OFDM signals. The approach relies on a thorough characterization of the individual components of the module, whence a detailed circuit model is obtained to design an impedance matching circuit for improved performance, prior to fabrication. The impedance matching is based on non-uniform transmission lines and works well over a wide frequency range (100 MHz to 2 GHz). The results are experimentally validated by the transmitter response exhibiting an increased 6 dB bandwidth limit and 1 GHz bandwidth improvement. © 2020 IEEE.

5.36 Gbit/s OFDM optical wireless communication link over the underwater channel

Authors
Araujo, JH; Kraemer, R; Tavares, JS; Pereira, F; Salgado, HM; Pessoa, LM;

Publication
2020 12th International Symposium on Communication Systems, Networks and Digital Signal Processing, CSNDSP 2020

Abstract
An OFDM transmission system is reported based on a directly modulated blue LASER diode, for high bit rate under-water optical communication applications. The 256 subcarriers 16-QAM signal is transmitted over a total distance of 2.4 m underwater with an EVM lower than -28.5 dB for a 250 MHz bandwidth and -16.5 dB for a 2 GHz bandwidth, the BER being lower than the forward error corrector limit. At the maximum bandwidth of 2 GHz a transmission rate of 5.36 Gbit/s is achieved. © 2020 IEEE.

Resonant tunneling diode photodetectors for optical communications

Authors
Watson, S; Zhang, WK; Tavares, J; Figueiredo, J; Cantu, H; Wang, J; Wasige, E; Salgado, H; Pessoa, L; Kelly, A;

Publication
Microwave and Optical Technology Letters

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.
