A recent publication from the Takashima Lab on LIDAR is ranked as the 7th of the most downloaded papers in Optics Express in April 2018. The research team demonstrated a LIDAR system which remotely identifies location and distance of moving objects with a high sampling rate of 3.4K points/s. The new laser beam steering concept is expected to replace a bulky and slow scanning LIDAR system with a fast and light-weight one that can be a mass-produced Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) device.
The LIDAR system measures the position of a moving object.
