Abstract

The effects of imperfect frequency locking on the performance of an optical phased array were investigated. An analytic expression was obtained for the far field intensity pattern in terms of the degree of mutual coherence between lasers. The results of the analytical study were applied to determine the Strehl ratio of an injection coupled optical phased array for different degrees of slave resonator length control, ratios of injected to slave laser intensities, and pulse durations.
