Paper Abstract

Integrated optical electrooptic modulators can play a crucial role in the sensing, control and processing of microwave and millimeter wave signals of phased array antenna systems. Integrated optical single side band modulators with narrowband resonant microwave electrode structures can serve as ideal microwave/optical transducers for antenna elements. The single side band modulation scheme allows the encoding of the microwave frequency and phase information onto an optical carrier shifted by the microwave frequency. This allows the use of coherent optical techniques for beam steering and signal processing of microwave signals used in phased array antenna systems.
