Abstract:

Not Available The bandwidth of current generation communications and adaptive optics is limited by the bandwidth of the either mechanical or electronic systems. There are a number of new applications that would be enabled if this bandwidth could be significantly increased. This includes adaptive optics for seeker window turbulence correction for Theater Missile Defense interceptors such as the THAAD or ARROW missiles, or ultra-high speed communications for theater or strategic missions. The limitation on this bandwidth is the modulator design. Current electro-optical modulators are limited to < 100 MHz. However, by building an array of such modulators, we can taker advantage of the parallelism to effectively increase the bandwidth of the channel. This means that instead of bit by bit serial encoding, we could use full word encoding. This process is fully scalable as additional channels are added. We propose to develop one- and two dimensional optoelectronic modulator arrays that can be driven at up 1 GHz rate with TTL pulses. Applications range from instantaneous wavefront correction, ultrafast beam steering, pulsed-beam diagnostics and ultrafast communication
