Acousto-Optical Tunable Filters (AOTFs) make use of the interaction between sound and light. To generate an ultrasound diffraction grating, a Radio-Frequency (RF) signal is applied to a piezoelectric transducer. The optical pass band can be controlled by adapting the properties of this transducer and the RF-signal. To achieve more precise...

This paper presents an advanced yet simple digital pre-distortion (DPD) technique for digital I/Q transmitters (DTXs). Exploiting the I/Q orthogonality, an effective 2×1-D DPD procedure is proposed to bypass the exhaustive 2-D search of the entire constellation diagram. Utilizing this technique, a four-way Doherty DTX is linearized....

Visible Light Communication (VLC) is widely considered a promising technology for the coming 6G networks. Recent studies show that a VLC transmitter not only emits visible light signals but also leaks RF signals during the transmission. In this work, we devote effort to harvesting the free leaked RF energy from VLC transmissions. We observe that...
