Radio-over-fiber-supported 60GHz multiuser transmission using leaky wave antenna

Habib, Usman, Steeg, Matthias, Stöhr, Andreas, Gomes, Nathan J. (2017) Radio-over-fiber-supported 60GHz multiuser transmission using leaky wave antenna. In: 2017 International Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics (MWP). . IEEE ISBN 978-1-5386-0762-6. (doi:10.1109/MWP.2017.8305443) (KAR id:72455)


Simultaneous transmission to multiple users using a single-feed leaky-wave antenna (LWA) has been demonstrated. A composite signal transported through a Radio-over-Fibre (RoF) setup is upconverted to V-band frequencies and a LWA is used to direct different user data to their respective locations. An EVM analysis has been performed for two-user and three-user transmission for a range of angular locations. A performance analysis for user interference has been carried out by varying the signal spacing for 152 MHz and 305 MHz bandwidth OFDM signals, centered at 61.75 GHz after 4m of wireless transmission. The experimental results show degradation not only due to insufficient frequency spacing between the channels but also when the sidelobe interference of the neighboring data channels is higher.
