Paper Abstract

The availability of optoelectronic components performing modulation and detection in the multigigahertz domain opens new avenues for optical transmission and processing of microwave signals. This paper briefly describes the state of the art in optoelectronic devices and reviews some system considerations, especially in the field of phased array antenna, that can warrant the introduction of optical technologies in radars.
