Paper Abstract

Components selected for use within an analog optical vector matrix processor require much attention to detail throughout the design, in order to obtain a high degree of accuracy for the resultant computed data. By incorporating a linearization look-up table, variable parameters of operation such as crossing a laser diode threshold, rf signal mixer intermodulation, or other non-linear events can be corrected and compensated. This paper addresses the lasing threshold and characteristics of the laser diode elements included with an advanced 64 by 64 channel analog optical vector matrix processor, currently under construction at Photonic Systems Incorporated.
