AbstractThe squint-free beamsteering capability of a photonic integrated beamformer based on continuously tunable optical ring resonators has been demonstrated by showing, for the first time, its generated radiation patterns. The paper demonstrates a beamsteering of 16 degrees over an instantaneous bandwidth of at least 450 MHz.
