We demonstrate a hybrid external cavity laser (ECL) and an optical phased array (OPA) on the silicon photonics platform for light detection and ranging (LiDAR) application. The ECL can be modulated to generate a frequency-modulated continuous-wave signal. The 256-channel OPA allows high-resolution optical beam scanning.
Linjie Zhou is a professor of the School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and the dean of SJTU-Pinghu Institute of Intelligent Optoelectronics. He received his Ph.D. degree in electronic and computer engineering from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2007. From 2007 to 2009, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at University of California, Davis. In 2010, he joined the State Key Lab of Advanced Optical Communication Systems and Networks of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. His research interests include silicon photonics and photonic integration. He has led more than 20 projects as PI and co-PI. He has published more than 250 peer-reviewed international journal and conference papers and given more than 70 invited talks at academic conferences. He has organized many sessions in various international and domestic conferences. He is an associate editor of IEEE Photonics Technology Letters and MDPI Photonics. In 2019, he was elected as the “Yangtse River Scholar” by the Minister of Education of China. In 2016, he was awarded the “Newton Advanced Fellowship” by the Royal Society, and in 2014 he was granted the “National Science Fund for Excellent Young Scholars”.
