Abstract

A White-cell-based binary optical true-time-delay device has two parts: the controller, or switching engine, and the delay elements. Here we discuss in detail the design of both glass blocks and lens trains as delay elements. Glass blocks can be used in our design for delays ranging from one to a few hundred picoseconds. Lens trains are suitable for longer delays. We also analyze the loss associated with each design and give design limits.
