Optical Phased Array May Be the Future of Lidar

Researchers at the University of Colorado describe a new optical phased array, silicon chip that has the potential to move beyond the bulky, complex Light Detection and Ranging (lidar) systems that are hindering the systems’ widespread adaptation. From an article … Continue reading

Silicon Photonics Lidar Sensor Can Balance on a Pin

Voyant Photonics claims they have a lidar sensor, based on the use of silicon photonics that is so small it can balance on the head of a pin. Now this is where things start to get interesting. FromĀ  an article … Continue reading
