Abstract

In this paper the development of a phased array antenna system using a photonic beamformer is reported. The paper emphasizes on the photonic integration between two main components of the beamformer, namely the photonic beamformer chip and the electroabsorption modulator array. System level simulation is used to determine the required performance of each component. The measurements on the component characteristics are presented.
