    Abstract

    In this paper, we theoretically and experimentally demonstrate that the major drawbacks of current beam scanning systems can be drastically reduced. First, the scanning speed of several MHz level has been achieved using an optical phased array. Since the increased scanning speed causes the lower scanning resolution due to the less number of pulses per pixel, multiplexing techniques to increase the repetition rate of a beam scanner have been demonstrated. The fiber multiplexing techniques have been demonstrated in serial and parallel configurations, which can be selected for different requirements and applications.
