Optical beamforming in receive mode of two independent simultaneous RF beams

  title={Optical beamforming in receive mode of two independent simultaneous RF beams},
  author={Mark Jaeger and Sergio Granieri and Azad Siahmakoun},
We propose and demonstrate a novel architecture for a programmable dispersion matrix (PDM) able to process two simultaneous independent RF beams with a resolution of 3 bits. The processor takes advantage of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) encoding. In our two-channel approach, four adjacent ITU optical WDM channels are used as optical carriers. The odd and even optical carriers are independently modulated with each received RF-beam using electro-optic modulators. Thus, each pair of… CONTINUE READING
