Summary: In this paper, we report on our recent work in designing and developing an optical waveguide and optical integrated circuit for optical BFN in adaptive multibeam array antenna. We introduce a new integrated Ti:LiNbO3 waveguide and prove that it is able to yield large birefringence and birefringence dispersion. We present a new technique using a microwave-modulated optical wave to measure the birefringence in integrated Ti:LiNbO3 optical waveguides. The measuring results show that the new waveguide has a birefringence of 0.08 and birefringence dispersion of 0.05 µm-1 at optical wavelength of 1.55 µm. When the new Ti:LiNbO3 is applied to form a integrated optical waveguide array in optical beamforming network, it is shown that microwave phase shifts within the range of [-180, +180] is achieved by tuning the optical wavelength 10 nm around 1.55 µm.
