Paper Abstract

We present a new coherent optical Beamformer for the receive mode based on a Dual Frequency Laser and Spatial Light Modulation matrixes. This coherent architecture, described and detailed by different building blocks, allows a full reconfiguration of the beam thanks to the SLM matrixes and a first down conversion due to the conjoint use of a heterodyne source and an external modulator.
