  • Based on the theory of electromagnetically induced transparency, we study the formation of all-optical blazed transmission gratings in a coherently driven three-level atomic system using intensity-modulated images in coupling fields. Also, we analyze the feasibility of high-speed (megahertz) modulation for the induced gratings by means of image-bearing flat-top pulse trains. Consequently, continuous-wave probe fields can be efficiently and rapidly deflected in free space. When more sophisticated images are adopted, our scheme can provide further possibilities of all-optical beam splitting and fanning.

  • The authors present the design and a proof of principle experimental results of an optically controlled high power rf pulse compression system. The design should, in principle, handle few hundreds of Megawatts of power at X-band. The system is based on the switched resonant delay line theory. It employs resonant delay lines as a means of storing rf energy. The coupling to the lines is optimized for maximum energy storage during the charging phase. To discharge the lines, a high power microwave switch increases the coupling to the lines just before the start of the output pulse. The high powermore » microwave switch, required for this system, is realized using optical excitation of an electron-hole plasma layer on the surface of a pure silicon wafer. The switch is designed to operate in the TE{sub 01} mode in a circular waveguide to avoid the edge effects present at the interface between the silicon wafer and the supporting waveguide; thus, enhancing its power handling capability.« less
