Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the character-istics required of optical lasers if they are to satisfactorily generate microwave R.F. signals. Two applications are considered, an airborne pulse doppler radar and a radar warning receiver. The main feature of each application is the necessity or desirability of generating the master R.F. signal at relatively large distances from the antenna. It is shown that the state of the art of semiconductor lasers is not equal to the requirements imposed by these applications.
