Professor Charbel Rizk and Professor Amy Foster’s paper, titled End-Fire Silicon Optical Phased Array with Half-Wavelength Spacing has been selected to be featured on the cover of APL Photonics. In the paper, the researchers experimented with a one-dimensional OPA device on an integrated silicon photonic platform capable of edge emission of light. Through their experiments, they concluded that not only could an increased resolution be achieved through an increased number of waveguide emitters, but also, that larger array and corresponding aperture sizes would allow the device to be used as receiver and transmitter applications.
