Abstract : The principal objective of this project is to develop a calibrated simulation model which can accurately predict the effects on overall phased array system performance when conventional subsystems are replaced with optically assisted subsystems. Various components of single side band (SSB) modulator have been designed and fabricated. The designs used for this task employed a commercially available microwave design software (MDS) developed for the microwave components, while the optical modulators are fabricated using the annealed proton exchange technique. This structure was one of the most complex microwave structures on LiNbO3 to date. The design of this structure requires a complexity well beyond a simple overlap integral. Therefore a real mixture of optical CAD with microwave design can be implemented.
