Paper Abstract

High performance beam steering techniques are essential for 3d imaging systems, and in particular automotive LIDAR. We present a high-speed, chip-scale, dynamically reconfigurable beam steering system suitable for use at telecom wavelengths. Our technique relies on sub-microsecond electro-optic switching between discrete outputs in a waveguide network. This beam steering technology, along with a coherent detection technique is used to demonstrate simultaneous ranging and Doppler velocimetry of targets with an amplitude modulated continuous wave solid state LIDAR system in a laboratory environment.
