SURFCOM - RF front-end with superconducting devices combined with radio over fiber tech. for 3G mobile

Start: 01 December 2004
End: 31 December 2005

This project comprises R&D activities related to the design of advanced receiver front-ends, including the development of filters made with High Temperature Superconductors (HTS), and the use of radio over fiber (RoF) techniques to efficiently distribute the signal. The combination of both technologies may allow a significant reduction of the infrastructure necessary in third generation mobile communication systems and, at the same time, it may improve the system performance.
