Abstract
Research in the use of guided wave optics for processing of wideband signals is reviewed, and advantages and limitations of the technology are discussed. The signal processors employ electrooptic and fiber optic components to perform such functions as spectral analysis of radio-frequency signals, correlation and matched filtering, code and waveform synthesis, signal delay and storage, and analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion. In most cases the guided-wave approach is distinguished by the ability to perform a particular function at very high analog bandwidths or digital data rates. In concluding remarks, an effort is made to provide some perspective on competing technologies and to indicate some areas where future research might prove fruitful.
