Optimization Design and In-lab characterization of Optical Phased Arrays (OPAs)

We are proposing to help design the experimental setup to characterize chip-scale Optical Phased Arrays (OPAs). OPAs – a photonic device used for optical beam forming and beam steering – have been widely studied for LiDAR, optical sensing, free-space communication and more. Building on previously prototyped phase array antenna design at Honeywell, the team aims to develop next-generation micro-photonic phase arrays that can steer beams with minimum output of 2 Watt (optical power) for data rates on the order of 10 Gbps and acceptable bit error rates. Our goal is to establish and conduct in-lab characterization of the newly design OPA to validate and verify design parameters predicted through simulation studies, as well as to provide recommendations for optimization of the OPA design.
