About

I am a senior researcher at the Centre of Telecommunications and Multimedia of INESC TEC, where I am also the coordinator of the area of Optical and Electronic Technologies. I received the “Licenciatura” degree in 2006 and PhD degree in 2011, both in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. Currently I am responsible for the conception and management of R&D projects, coordination of research students and fostering the valorization of research results through new contracts with industry. I was previously involved in teaching of RF/microwave engineering and optical communications as an invited assistant professor at the University of Porto. I am author/co-author of more than 50 publications in international conferences and journals with peer-review, and 1 european patent. I have coordinated several research projects and participated in several EU research projects. My main research interests include coherent optical systems, radio-over-fibre, RF/microwave devices and antennas, and underwater wireless power/communications.

LASER diode-based transmitter module for optical wireless communications

Authors

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.

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

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.
