Paper Abstract

Optical phased arrays (OPAs) are a solid-state device able to manipulate the distribution of optical power without the use of mechanical beam steering systems and have potential applications in free-space laser communications, target acquisition and tracking, and interferometry. Here we present a scalable OPA and digital control architecture capable of steering a laser beam at MHz frequencies, and having arbitrary control over the beam wavefront.
