Abstract
Novel 3D multichannel optical control systems are introduced for large coherent optical, array applications such as coherent laser radar and steered coherent optical communication links. Three optical control systems are introduced using a wide variety of photonic technologies such as acousto-optics, liquid crystals, bulk birefringent crystals, and polarization optics. System control speeds vary from a slow milli-second range to a fast sub- microsecond range. Each proposed system is appropriate for a particular application.
