Welcome to the UCY Microwave Photonics Lab. Our research concerns the interface between microwave engineering and photonics, with current projects focused towards radio over fibre. We carry out both theoretical and experimental work, with the latter supported by a comprehensive range of optical and microwave test equipment.
