An active antenna array with optical input and beam scanning capability was developed. The phase shift between antenna elements is controlled by means of unilateral injection locking. The reference signal for injection locking is launched into an optical fiber by a multiquantum-well InGaAs-InGaAsP distributed feedback laser. The RF signal is recovered by a photodetector at the other end of the link and fed to the RF circuit. Experimental results are presented and discussed.<>
