Lidar Emitter and Detector Technologies

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

Automotive industry demands are challenging manufacturers of pulsed laser diodes and avalanche photodiodes to create new and customized responses.

MATT ROBINSON, LASER COMPONENTS USA INC.

For many decades, lidar has been a successful technology for traffic monitoring and speed control. Self-driving transport vehicles in factory halls even use it for navigation. During all this time, the main components — namely pulsed laser diodes (PLDs) and the detecting photodiodes — have remained more or less the same. But increasing research in autonomous passenger vehicles has triggered new technological developments on both the emitting and receiving ends. PLDs that generate ultrashort pulses at high repetition rates enable faster and more precise 3D lidar scanning....Read full article
