The operating characteristics of a hybrid integrated optical spectrum analyzer and the results of a design analysis performed to permit the development of an improved device are discussed. The existing device incorporates a LiNbO3 substrate, which contains a Ti-indiffused optical waveguide, two near-diffraction-limited geodesic waveguide lenses, and a two-element surface acoustic wave transducer array, and a butt-coupled photodiode array. The optical source is either an end-fire or butt-coupled laser. This unit has been shown to operate over a 400 MHz bandwidth with a resolution which varies from 5.3 MHz for an optical wavelength of 0.6328 μm to 4.0 MHz for 0.83 μm.
