Abstract
A monolithic optical time-shift network is described which is designed to steer a dual-band microwave phased array antenna at 2 and 10 GHz. The advantages of using cascade type network architectures to achieve the desired resolution are demonstrated. The implementation of different delay times in this optical time-shifter via bias control of detectors integrated monolithically on a GaAs wafer is described.
