Paper Abstract

The purpose of this work is to develop relationships between the normalized far-field peak intensity (Strehl ratio or SR) and system jitter in a phased array device. The results are valid for arbitrary shaped apertures as well as arbitrary array patterns. For identical apertures and uncorrelated jitter among the apertures, the SR is independent of the number of apertures and their arrangement. On the other hand for correlated jitter, the far field degradation is sensitive to the array pattern and is least sensitive for a close-packed array.
