Photonics Chip Laser Metrology System for LUVOIR

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

In this project, we will design an integrated photonics circuit (PIC) that includes all essential laser metrology functions necessary for active alignment of multi-segmented telescopes represented by LUVOIR. The proposed photonics-chip metrology laser concept would dramatically simplify the existing metrology system in size and mass, and improve performance by integrating components into PICs with a much smaller footprint.  This project will focus on designing the first prototype metrology PIC.
