Abstract
The objective of this Phase II proposal is to build a solid-state all-electronic beam steering system designed for laser radar (LADAR) beam steering. The system will employ two primary components: 1) a high performance electro-optic (EO) device to steer a laser beam and 2) a passive "superprism" that amplifies the EO steering angle. The superprism is a breakthrough technology that uses a photonic crystal (PC) structure and exploits the superprism effect in PC structures. The resulting device will lead to high-speed, high-reliability, beam steering systems with no moving parts suitable for deployment on missile systems, space platforms, small, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and laser communication systems.
