Abstract
A novel high accuracy all electronic technique for phase locking large arrays of optical fibers is demonstrated. We report the first demonstration of RF phase modulation phase locking for fiber arrays and measure a fringe visibility of 97%. Phase locking was maintained for phase disturbances of 20,000 waves/sec.
