Abstract

Beam-steering-based optical wireless technologies are being widely investigated due to the capability of providing high-speed wireless connectivity in indoor applications. However, high-speed indoor optical wireless systems are traditionally realized with discrete bulky components, significantly limiting their practical applications. In this Letter, we demonstrate an infrared optical wireless communication system employing a miniaturized silicon integrated photonic circuit for beam steering for the first time. Experimental results show that up to 12.5 Gb/s optical wireless communication can be achieved with error-free performance over a free-space range of 140 cm, and limited mobility of users can be realized. The experimental results of this Letter open the way for realizing integrated high-speed optical wireless communications.
