Abstract
The development of compact Gbit/sec bandwidth Army free-space, laser communication systems requires a new generation of fiber-optic, high-speed, multi-channel beam controllers. It is proposed to develop a low-loss, multi-channel, integrated transmit/receive, beam-combiner and controller with high-speed, low voltage phase shifting and amplitude modulation capabilities. The Transmit/Receive (Transceiver) Integrated Phase and Amplitude Controller (TRIPAC), will be made using compact, ultra-low-loss, electro-optic Lithium Niobate (LiNbO3) optical waveguide IC technology. This monolithic solid-state device will be capable of launching and splitting a high-power 1550 nm laser beam into an array of multiple parallel high-speed phase shifters and amplitude controllers operating simultaneously on both transmitted and received beams.
