This paper reports on a light detection and ranging (LIDAR) system that incorporates a microelectromechanical-system (MEMS) mirror scanner and a single-photon imager. The proposed architecture enables a high signal-to-background ratio due to pixel-level synchronization of the single-photon imager and the MEMS mirror. It also allows the receiving optics to… CONTINUE READING
