Abstract : The possible development of the electrooptic scanner with quick random access may find new applications in optical information processing, optical sensing and optical communications. The optical scanner using arrayed waveguides is one of the candidate devices because of its high speed operation and reliability. However, Optical power coupling into the arrayed waveguides has been one of the problems. In this paper, we describe an experiment to integrate the scanner with an optical branch on the substrate.
