Abstract
LightSpin Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop a revolutionary photoreciever focal plane for coherent laser Doppler vibrometry (LDV) applications. The approach readily scales to tens of thousands of pixels, while maintaining low power and sampling rates in excess of 100 MSa/s. In Phase I, LightSpin will demonstrate individual photoreciever pixels. In Phase II, LightSpin will complete an eye-safe focal plane array, incorporating the photoreciever pixels, 100 MSa/s ADC, and digital signal processor, enabling shot noise limited CNR to be achieved across all 3000 pixels of the array.
