Abstract:

Support of high frequency fiber optic links through development of innovative higher efficiency techniques to convert optical energy directly to RF Energy. Control of Phases Arrays by optical means in an area of expanding technology development. Fiber optics and other forms of optical waveguide can provide greater accuracy and true time delay in a phase delay network. Determine methods of improvement in transfer of optical energy to RF Energy. Development of Direct Optical-to-RF-Direct Amplifiers will result in higher efficiency, low noise, optical receivers for fiber optic links with improved performance. This will result in longer fiber optic links without repeaters and improved BER or shorter links.
