Want to reduce the size and cost of your beamforming application without compromising on power, performance or reliability? Discover imec’s solid-state beamforming technology.
Optical beamforming technology concerns the ability to steer, shape and focus light. It’s a powerful tool to:
The market for optical beamforming applications is continuously growing. For example:
What do these applications have in common? Their optical beamforming systems need to be compact and low-cost. And that’s where imec’s photonics-based on-chip technology comes in.
Imec’s optical beamforming technology is based on a concept that’s similar to the one used in modern radar systems: a phased antenna array.
Such a solid-state system is non-mechanical, and therefore reliable, compact and low-power. Moreover, it enables a:
Depending on your application, these optical beamforming features might be essential to you:
