Abstract:This thesis reports on a Master assignment conducted at the Telecommunication Engineering (TE) Group at the University of Twente. The task is to develop and implement a control system for ring resonator-based Optical Beam Forming Networks (OBFNs). Beam shaping and beam steering, together called beamforming, is needed when processing radio-frequency signals from phased array antennas. This can be achieved in the optical domain, by tuning an OBFN. The tuning of such a network is the task of a control system. That system is the topic of research in this assignment. It enables thermo-optical tuning of ring resonator based OBFNs. In this thesis, the context, design and implementation of the control system are studied. Measurements are described to show the correct working of the implemented prototype.
