UROOF

Photonic components for ultra wideband radio over optical fiber


Acronym: UROOF
Project type: European
Period: 01-07-2006 / 31-12-2008
Reference: 033615
Coordinator: HOLON INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Project description:
The key goal for UROOF is to investigate building blocks for enabling the delivery of Ultra-wideband (UWB) radio signal over low-cost optical fibre. The aims are therefore to study, develop, test and implement very low cost conversion solutions for direct optical-to-UWB (O/UWB) and UWB-to-optical (UWB/O) based on innovative microwave photonic concepts. Unlike state of the art radio-over-fiber (RoF) technologies that are used in the backbone of the wireless access systems, UROOF will address the challenges of the low-cost wireless personal area networks (WPAN).
