Title
(EN) LIDAR SYSTEM WITH A MULTI-MODE WAVEGUIDE PHOTODETECTOR
(FR) SYSTÈME LIDAR AVEC PHOTODÉTECTEUR À GUIDE D'ONDES MULTIMODE
Abstract
(EN)
A light detection and ranging (LIDAR) apparatus is provided that includes an optical source configured to emit an optical beam. The LIDAR apparatus further includes free space optics configured to receive a first portion of the optical beam as a target signal and a second portion of the optical beam as a local oscillator signal, and combine the target signal and the local oscillator signal. The LIDAR apparatus includes a multi-mode (MM) waveguide configured to receive the combined signal.

L'invention concerne un appareil de détection et de télémétrie par la lumière (LIDAR) comprenant une source optique conçue pour émettre un faisceau optique. L'appareil LIDAR comprend en outre une optique d'espace libre conçue pour recevoir une première portion du faisceau optique en tant que signal cible et une seconde portion du faisceau optique en tant que signal d'oscillateur local et pour combiner le signal cible et le signal d'oscillateur local. L'appareil LIDAR comprend un guide d'ondes multimode (MM) conçu pour recevoir le signal combiné.
