Matrixtopological method of designing optronic circuits
Abstract
As a first step in developing a linear theory of optoelectronic systems, the matrixtopological method is employed in analyzing such systems. Construction of a linear model for optron networks represented by a system of generalized parameters made it possible to extend the generalized methods of the electronic circuit theory to the analysis and design of circuits containing optronic networks. The unified parameter system is determined by electrical and optical characteristics of optron components and is independent of the way in which the optron is connected with external devices. The signal graph method is shown to be readily applicable for analyzing optoelectronic networks. Analytical expressions of circuit functions of optrons have demonstrated large potential of these networks as electrical and optical signal converters. The results can serve as a basis for designing optoelectronic circuits and developing optronic components with given characteristics.
