Phased array antennas are expected to be effective for use in advanced wireless communications for mobile radio communication, wireless LAN, and satellite communication [1]. Recently, the application of photonics technology to microwave array antennas has been studied [2-5]. An optically controlled phased array antenna is very well-suited for fiber-optic microwave or millimeter-wave links. Optical components such as a lens and optical fibers can be combined to form a beam forming network (BFN… CONTINUE READING
