  • Publication number: 20200050034
    Abstract: A liquid crystal waveguide (LCW) can include actively controlled incoupling of light into a LCW, such as by using a voltage-controlled electrode to actively vary a property of an LC material arranged to affect the incoupling of light into the LCW. Actively varying light incoupling into the LCW can be used, for example, such as for calibration or compensation or to provide closed-loop feedback such as to stabilize the amount of light into the LCW while accommodating or reducing sensitivity of the LCW to variations in one or more of: input laser light incidence angle, input laser wavelength, LCW or input laser temperature, input laser optical power level, or the like. This can advantageously help improve or maximize light incoupling efficiency, which can improve performance and robustness of the LCW under actual operating conditions. The LCW can be used for, among other things, beamsteering in in-plane and out-of-plane directions.

  • Publication number: 20200019037
    Abstract: An electro-optical beamsteerer can be coupled with other optical structures. For example, such optical structures can be used to shape a beam being steered by the beamsteerer or shape a field-of-regard (FOR) addressable from the perspective of the beamsteerer. Optical elements placed at an output of the LCW can be used as a “spot mapper” to increase or decrease the field of view that can be scanned by a beam steered by the LCW, as an illustrative example, Lenses or other optical elements can also be used to correct distortion in the steered beam distribution across the field of view, such as to provide a “smile corrector.” In a similar manner, optical elements can be placed at an input to the beamsteerer, such as to provide a beam expander to change the size of the beam profile inside the beamsteerer device.
