Paper Abstract

To control optical phased array by steering the wavelength of the light source, this paper presents the method using 2-D photonic crystal waveguides, which replace the conventional waveguides to guide and form the beam in the array. As a result, we present a 1-D optical phased array, whose optical beam can scan an angle from -40 degree to +40 degree with a SNR about 15 dB by a relative simple device in ±3 nm tuning at 1550 nm.
