Photonic integration technology operating in millimeter wave frequency range (30- 300 GHz) is one of the most advanced methods in wireless communication systems. Dual wavelength source is generated by active and passive integrated optical methods. This paper mainly focuses on the high data transfer enabling. The laser heterodyne signal is analyzed and by using simulation technique BER of transmitted signal is measured.
