The team at Kyber Photonics is developing a lidar chip to enable the next generation of autonomous robots and vehicles.
December 1, 2020

Josué J. López, Thomas Mahony, and Samuel Kim write about how their team at Kyber Photonics is advancing the next generation of lidar sensors by developing a new solid-state, lidar-on-a-chip architecture that was recently demonstrated at MIT and MIT Lincoln Laboratory. The technology has an extremely wide field of view, a simplified control approach compared to the state-of-the-art designs, and has the promise to scale to millions of units via the wafer-scale fabrication methods of the integrated photonics industry.
