PhD topic and brief description

  • Advances in silicon photonics technology can be exploited to create optical beam deflection systems that were not possible in earlier technologies. Such opportunity can allow for the creation of novel solid state beam deflection devices that have not been realized before in commercial fields. My project will analyse possible architectures of beam steering components, which will be used to realize a design that satisfies a large steering angle at a fast scanning speed. I will also explore electrical control of the scanner, and its feedback mechanisms.
