This report describes the investigation and realization of a number of new hybrid integrated optic device modules in LiNbO3 waveguides under the sponsorship of the Army Research Office. All of these device modules possess the desirable characteristics of very large bandwidth GHz or higher, very small substrate size along the optical path typically 1.5 cm, single-mode optical propagation, and low drive power requirement. The devices utilize either acoustooptic or electrooptic effects in planar or channel waveguides and, therefore, act as efficient interface devices between a light wave and temporal signals. Major areas of application lie in wideband multichannel optical real-time signal processings, communications, and computing. Some of the specific applications include correlation of RF signals, fiber-optic sensing, optical systollic array computing and multiport switchingrouting, and analog-to-digital conversion of wideband RF signal.
