Laser beam scanners are important optical elements with a large variety of applications in the measurement techniques, optical communications, laser imaging ladar, etc. Agile beam steering of optical radiation using phased arrays offers significant advantages, such as weight, stability and power requirements over conventional beam steering systems. There are several kinds of optical phased array technology to be developed, such as Lithium tantalite phase shifters, lithium niobate electro-optic prism deflectors, and liquid crystal and ferroelectric liquid crystal phase modulations. However, one of the major drawbacks of these approaches is low light efficiencies because of the side lobes in far-field pattern of the steering beam. In this paper, a new low side lobe optical beam steering technique using phase correction technique is proposed. A stable and fast single-lobed far-field pattern in steering beam can be obtained from the optical phased array with a phase plate by optima design. It can result in a substantially increased light efficiency and beam quality. The quantitative calculation results of typical optical phased array are demonstrated. The low side lobe optical beam steering technology of optical phased array will benefit many practical applications such as laser ladar, laser communications and high resolution displays.
