On the Experimental Characterization of Generated and Received Pulses of Photoconductive Antennas

Abstract

Photoconductive antennas (PCAs) are promising candidates for sensing and imaging systems. We have investigated their properties under pulsed laser illumination both in transmission and reception. First, a transmitting PCA has been characterized including a power measurement. Then, a Quasi-Optical (QO) link between a transmitter and a receiver was modelled and analyzed. In this work, we characterize this link with measurement. We use bow-tie based PCAs as examples, and measure the radiated power of the transmitter and the detected current of the receiver. The measurement shows very good agreement with the simulation.
