Paper Abstract

The features and operation of an electro-optically switched binary optical time delay system are discussed. THe system based on polarization switching using the low cost ferro- electric liquid crystal and polarizing beam splitters provides compactness, low complexity, low insertion loss and arbitrary time delay. We present the design, component selection, fabrication, testing, and evaluation of a prototype.
