||Active III-V photonic components and passive Si photonic circuits are integrated with CMOS electronic
circuits in this project. The modular MEMS-Electronic-Photonic Heterogeneous Integration (MEPHI) platform
will make use of the high performance of the individual components and integrate (1) photodetectors, (2) Si-
photonic waveguides, couplers, and interferometers, and (3) CMOS circuits for frequency control and
temperature compensation. In order to demonstrate the capabilities of the proposed EPHI platform, a
frequency-modulated continuous-wave laser detection and ranging (FMCW LADAR) source is being developed.
Results have shown that electronic-photonic 3D integration of optoelectronic components can greatly improve
the performance of FMCW LADAR sources. We demonstrate an FMCW LADAR with 4-micron ranging precision.
