Paper Abstract

The Microwave-to-Optical Transformation (MOT) method is based on the Optical Admittance Diagram an optical thin film filter design tool that uses the characteristic matrix, and the quarter wave rule for the design and analysis of microwave and optical computing circuits/components. As previously reported, this technique has also been extended for characterization of the electric field strength of certain microwave devices. This paper discusses a MOT designed co-planar waveguide transition component or network for use in launching power to a new generation microwave source known as a Field Emitter Array (FEA). This paper will give a brief description of an FEA and discuss the feasibility of designing a co-planar waveguide for this particular application.
