Developing 3-D Imaging and LiDAR Sensors: Problems and Technologies
Silvano Donati;Wood-Hi Cheng

In this paper we discuss the technologies developed for 3-D imaging-taking cameras, also variously called 3-D rangefinders, telemeters or LiDAR, and their applications to a number of scientific, industrial, biomedical and automotive fields.
We start from the description of the basic configurations used to build single-point laser rangefinders, that is, (i) triangulation, (ii) time-of-flight and (iii) interferometry, and then analyze the system requirements on parameters like: covered range, illumination power, detector noise, and stray light.
First, we illustrate how triangulation offers a relatively simple optical setup and is capable of reaching sub-mm resolution on distances up to several meters, provided the parallax base of observation is sizeable, and also yields the 3-D capability with either fan-beam scanning or image processing of the camera data. Variants of triangulation like Moire' contouring and spot array projection will also be mentioned.
Second, we analyze time-of-flight (ToF) rangefinders, that can take two different formats according to the choice of the source, i.e., the pulsed and the sine-wave techniques. Common to both are the power budget and the system equations, that we will briefly outline to calculate the achievable resolution, expressed as a characteristic time divided by the square root of received photons, where time is the pulse duration for the pulsed and the inverse pulsation frequency for the sine-wave. We consider development issues for ToF telemeters, like single vs double optics, choice of frequency, ambiguity range and index-of-refraction correction, and thereafter we present some examples of applications to topography and geodesy.
Third, we briefly report on interferometric pickup of 3-D distance data, showing that the main source of error – the speckle pattern phase error introduced by a normal diffusing target surface – can be tamed down to 5-10 micrometer by appropriate choice of the spot size and distance.
Moving on to 3-D imaging, the limitations obtained by simple, scanning beam extension of single-element rangefinders are addressed to motivate the quest for image-level processing of rangefinder data, that is, the development of a 3-D smart pixel camera in which each pixel integrates, along with the detector, all the functions of a full rangefinder.
Then we describe two approaches to smart-pixel 3-D developed in the frame of European Community Research programs: (i) the Megaframe (MF) pulsed ToF, based on an SPAD array and a smart pixel incorporating detector, preamp, TAC, logic selector, line driver, memory, and voltage converter integrated in a single 50x50 sq-micron pixel of a 128x128 array, and (ii) the sine-wave detector-demodulator (swDD) with a switching element integrated with a pin photodiode to realize the 4-phase demodulation of the delayed sine-wave received at the photodetector on a 120x160 pixel array. The fill-factors of the two approaches are 8% for the MF – requiring a micro-lens array for a recovery to a reasonable 50-60%, and 24 % for the swDD, while the chip size is 16x16 sq-mm and 2.5x2.5 sq-mm, respectively.
Finally, we consider in some detail the application of 3-D rangefinders to the automotive field, as anti-collision sensors as well as autonomous driving. The ToF is favored for best matching to performance (distance and accuracy) specifications, while a slow-pulse version of the pulsed telemeter is preferred to satisfy the laser safety requirement (1.05-mW at 900 nm and 10-mW at 1500 nm). An example of LiDAR integrated in the car headlight will be presented.

Three-Port Optical Phase-Shifters and Modulators with Ultra-High Modulation Efficiency, Positive RF-Linking Gain, and Low Residual Amplitude Modulation
Rui Lin Chao;Zohauddin Ahmad;Jin-Wei Shi

Three-port PNP-BJT configuration phase-shifter is demonstrated. Carrier injection induces more conspicuous changes of refractive index hence exhibits small Vpi (0.18V), Ppi(0.21mW). Fast rise/fall time (~1ns), small residue-amplitude-modulation (RAM) are also recorded (0.18dB). +4.0 dB RF-linking gain under dynamic operation proves three-ports to be more efficient than two-port counterpart.

Due to the huge demand of Internet of Things (IOT) and cloud service, the transmission capacity inside the data center is highly required. The 100Gb/s transmission is deployed widely and the 400Gb/s transmission is growing inside the data center. Moreover, the solution of 800Gb/s transmission is discussing now. To achieve the bandwidth requirement, a novel transmission structure of four wavelengths (λ) by four single mode fibers (SMF) is proposed and the aggregated transmission capacity is up to 1.6Tb/s to satisfy the bandwidth demand of data center in the next decade. To realize this novel idea, the silicon photonics technology is the best candidate due to the advantage of integration. In this presentation, a silicon photonics transmitting (Tx) chip by integrated more than forty devices is designed. Total sixteen optimized Mach-Zenhder Modulators (MZM) are built and a special 4x16 Array Waveguide (AWG) Optical Multiplexer is included in the Tx chip. External high power DFB laser diodes are packaged by the edge to inject the light into the Tx chip. The total optical loss is around 30dB which will be improved by a further process and structure optimization. A single MZM is tested to demonstrate the 100Gb/s PAM4 transmission. In the receiving side, sixteen Ge photodiodes is integrated on the silicon photonics receiving chip. At the end of four 1x4 AWG optical De-multiplexers. A 50GHz bandwidth of the Ge photodiode is measured to ensure the 100Gb/s PAM4 receiving. In general, the feasibility of this novel 4λ x 4 SMF transmission structure and the possibility of this Tx optical engine and Rx optical engine are shown and will be a potential candidate in the future data center in the next decade.
