1) Solidstate Laser Beam Steering Technology for Lidar

Date Published: June 21, 2022

A recent publication from Takashima Lab on LIDAR is address laser beam steering by motion-less and solid-state MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) device, Texas Instruments Phase Light Modulator (TI-PLM).

The research team demonstrated a quasi-continuous and multi-points beam steering by TI-PLM. The beam steering concept is expected to achieve more intelligent and adaptive lidar system by replacing a bulky thus slow scanning LIDARs with a fast and light ones with a mass produced Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) device.
