On-chip PHotonics Erbium-doped Laser for LIdar Applications

Project description

Integrated photonics could speed up commercialisation of compact LIDAR

Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) systems can provide accurate imaging and mapping for a wide range of applications. They are the 'eyes' for autonomous vehicles, and they are also used by autonomous robots and drones. However, the size and costs of the technology currently needed have limited LIDAR use in commercial applications. The EU-funded OPHELLIA project will fabricate novel building blocks for LIDAR, namely silicon nitride photonic chips, to produce high-performance laser sources with unprecedented coherence and power. An advanced integrated circuit packaging solution will dramatically reduce the overall LIDAR costs. Project work will be a key step forward for the widespread commercialisation of compact LIDAR systems that could have far-reaching implications for telecommunications, sensing and quantum technologies.
