Paper Abstract

Device concepts for two—dimensional phased—array optics are formulated. Dielectric waveguide optics and electro—optical organic materials can be used to make multiple layers of electro-optically controlled channel waveguides and artificial prisms. Combining element scanning, array scanning, and nonuniform spacing of elements yield devices with increased resolution and reduced side—lobes. These techniques permit the fabrication of two-dimensional phase spatial-light-modulators which are applicable to two—dimensional beam scanning, wavefront shaping, dynamic lenses, and sensors.
