Paper Abstract

Considerable progress has been made in thin film optical devices and optical fiber waveguides over the past few years. Most of the research and development effort to date in fiber optics and "integrated optics" has been directed toward communications applications. Recently, it has been realized that there are also important potential uses for these technologies in military systems for processing wideband information and for sensing physical quantities. This paper reviews these anticipated applications including signal delay, matched filtering, A/D conversion, rf spectrum analysis, logic, pressure sensing, and rotation rate sensing.
