In this contribution we present experimental results of optically controlled mm-wave array antennas which may be used in broadband mobile communication systems. Two operation principles have been investigated: downlink beam forming for transmission and uplink beam steering for optimization of the reception. In both cases the field distributions of the antennas were formed by a Silica based photonic beam forming network.
