The Evolving Role of Lidar from Automotive ADAS to Robotaxis (AF1M.3)
Presenter: Rajeev Thakur, Velodyne Lidar, Inc.

Automotive OEM know the public is willing to pay for ADAS technology that prevent accidents. ADAS also clearly helps to sell cars – all top 10 selling vehicles in 2019 featured active safety technology. Many OEM are working to add lidar sensing to cameras and radars to make perception robust and representative of real-world conditions and not just minimum regulatory standards to earn a higher crash rating. This movement is enabled by increasingly smaller, efficient and cost effective lidar concepts being offered by the innovative market – the latest from Velodyne being its $100 Velabit lidar. The requirements for lidar in ADAS and robotaxis are different – this poses additional challenges to lidar makers – who on one hand have to find the right value proposition of performance to price and on the other hand are trying to accelerate the technology out of the lab into the mass production world. In this presentation, Velodyne will present some of our findings and roadmap to bring safety and economies of scale to the masses through our lidar innovations.

3D laser printing: high resolution and throughput (SF2R.1)
Presenter: Saulius Juodkazis, Swinburne University of Technology

A GHz-burst ablation rate using fast scan of ultra-short laser pulses depends on pulse fluence [J/cm2] as Fp2 due to strong absorption within the skin depth of photo-excited material. The very same phenomenon of shallow energy deposition is responsible for polymerisation using fast 1cm/s scan of ultra-short laser pulses.

Nanophotonics Technology for Signal Processing and Neuromorphic Accelerators (JF3A.3)
Presenter: Yeshaiahu Fainman, University of California San Diego

Dense photonic integration requires miniaturization of materials, devices and subsystems, including passive components (e.g., engineered composite metamaterials, filters, etc.), active components (e.g., lasers, modulators and nonlinear wave mixers) and integrated circuits (Fourier transform spectrometer, programmable phase modulator of free space modes, etc.). These novel devices are needed for future signal processing and neuromorphic processors.

Amplitude Multiplexing Readout for Integrated SNSPD (FF3D.2)
Presenter: Alessandro Gaggero, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche

The growing complexity of integrated quantum optics experiments requires the simultaneous readout of an increasing number of optical mode, hence integrated detectors. Amplitude-multiplexing scheme allows the reading of tens of SNSPDs using only one coaxial-cable.

Photon-Number Resolution Using Superconducting Tapered Nanowire Detector (FF3D.5)
Presenter: Di Zhu, MIT

We show that a superconducting nanowire with an integrated impedance-matching taper can resolve photon numbers. The taper increases the nanowire detector’s output amplitude and makes it sensitive to the number of single-photon-induced hotspots.
