Photonics Spectra Optics Conference

Photonics Spectra Optics Conference 2021

The publishers of Photonics Spectra invite you to attend a free virtual conference spanning two days. The Photonics Spectra Optics Conference will feature educational presentations on optics manufacturing, covering design and fabrication to coatings and metrology and other key elements of the optics value chain. 

Yves Lemaitre and Martin Reeves of RIO Lasers (now a part of Luna Innovations) will be presenting Building the Best Coherent or FMCW LiDAR: 5 Criteria for Selecting the Right Laser.


Building a great LiDAR system requires a great laser. In this webinar, we will look at the five most important criteria for choosing the right laser for your LiDAR systems, which are increasingly based on narrow linewidth lasers due to their superior performance vs. traditional time-of-flight solutions. FMCW and coherent lasers enable new LiDAR applications requiring high-resolution, long-distance, 3D-sensing and velocity measurement. Autonomous vehicles such as Robotaxi or self-driving trucks, wind, metrology, and space navigation are examples where FMCW LiDARs are being adopted today and are expected to grow significantly over the next decade. Selecting the right laser source requires a careful analysis and balancing of multiple attributes.

When: Thursday, April 28 at 8:45am EDT.
