Paper Abstract

An optical processor for phased array antenna beam forming has been demonstrated. It is capable of providing real-time control of both antenna beam steering and beam shaping in one or two dimensions, with an RMS phase linearity of five bits. The functions of beam shaping and steering are combined through a magnetooptic spatial light modulator (SLM) which is fast, small, and simple to use.
