A methodology for designing an octic-style optical true-time-delay (TTD) device based on the White cell (WC) is investigated. The octic cell is a"polynomial"cell, one of the two classes of TTD White cells. This octic cell is designed to produce a maximum of 6399 delays in 17 bounces, with a unit delay of 3 ps. Glass blocks are used for short delays, white lens trains are used for the longer delays. The octic cell is designed to use a microelectromechanical tip/tilt micromirror array to direct light beams into various delay paths.
