    1. Coherent receiver array

      Coherent receiver array

      Optical coherent receiver arrays are described. The optical coherent receiver arrays include an integrated array of photodetectors separated by integrated mirrors which may cause interference of received free space optical and local oscillator signals. The mirrors may serve as splitters, helping to align the received signal and local oscillator to cause interference. The photodetectors of the optical coherent receiver array may be electrically coupled in various manners to read out the signals.

    2. Multi-cavity wavelength tunable laser device

      Multi-cavity wavelength tunable laser device

      A wavelength tunable laser device includes a gain element that provides optical gain. A laser cavity includes at least two cavities, wherein each of the at least two cavities has a different optical cavity length. At least two optical modulators are positioned in the laser cavity, wherein the at least two optical modulators are driven with waveforms so as to tune a wavelength of the wavelength tunable laser device.

    3. Wavelength tunable laser device

      Wavelength tunable laser device

      A photonic integrated circuit wavelength tunable laser device includes a gain element integrated into a photonic integrated circuit. The gain element provides optical gain to an optical signal. A tunable filter is integrated into the photonic integrated circuit. A modulator is integrated into the photonic integrated circuit that modulates the optical signal as a function of time, wherein the gain element, the tunable filter, and the modulator form a wavelength tunable laser device having a wavelength that tunes as a function of time.

    4. Integrated optical system

      Integrated optical system

      Disclosed herein are optical integration technologies, designs, systems and methods directed toward Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and other interferometric optical sensor, ranging, and imaging systems wherein such systems, methods and structures employ tunable optical sources, coherent detection and other structures on a single or multichip monolithic integration. In contrast to contemporary, prior-art OCT systems and structures that employ simple, miniature optical bench technology using small optical components positioned on a substrate, systems and methods according to the present disclosure employ one or more photonic integrated circuits (PICs), use swept-source techniques, and employ a widely tunable optical source(s).

The mirrors may serve as splitters, helping to align the received signal and local oscillator to cause interference. The photodetectors of the optical coherent receiver array may be electrically coupled in various manners to read out the signals. The optical coherent receiver array may be implemented in an optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging system in some embodiments.
