Abstract

This project investigates an optimum phase design implementing a 256 phase Opto-ULSI processor for multi-function capable optical networks. The design of an 8 phase processor is already in construction and will provide the in1tial base for experimentation and character1sation. The challenge is to be able to compensate for the non-linearity of the liquid crystal, find an optimum phase, and implement a larger scale Opto-ULSI processor. This research is oriented around the initial development of an 8 phase Opto-ULSI processor that implements a Beam Steering (BS) OptoULSI processor (OUP) for integrated intelligent photonic system (IIPS), while investigating the optimal phase characteristics and developing compensation for the nonlinearity of liquid crystal.
