After decades of research and developments, radio frequency monolithic phased arrays are becoming mainstream for automotive radar and high-speed wireless communication applications. Optical beam steering has been around for several decades as well; but, they have not been as widely used partially due to their relatively higher cost and form factor. Advancement in fabrication technology may enable monolithic optical phased arrays with low cost, size, and power consumption for a wide range of… CONTINUE READING
