Abstract
An optoelectronic arbitrary-waveform generator has been proposed and experimentally developed for radar applications. It permits generating predefined waveforms by driving the amplitudes and phase shifts of optically carried microwave signals. The optical architecture combines a high-resolution frequency shifter (for the heterodyne generation of the microwave signal) with spatial light modulators (for the parallel control of amplitudes and phases). Such a waveform generator can be attractive for target recognition or for target simulation.
