In this paper, Milanizadeh et al. prove that photonic integrated circuits can be implemented to automatically control free space optical beams emitted from an optical antenna array. The research team demonstrate several functionalities of free space optical beam control such as compensation of non-perfect optical antennas, imaging through a diffusive medium and identification of an unknown obstacle in the optical path. This study represents a successful proof of concept for a new alternative in the field of free space optical beam manipulation.
