Current silicon photonics phased arrays based on waveguide gratings enable beam steering with no moving parts. However, they su er from a trade-o between beam divergence and field of view. Here, we show a platform based on silicon-nitride/silicon that achieves simultaneously minimal beam divergence and maximum field of view while maintaining performance that is robust to fabrication variations. In addition, in order to maximize the emission from the entire length of the grating, we design the grating’s strength by varying its duty cycle (apodization) to emit uniformly. We fabricate a millimeter long grating emitter with di raction-limited beam divergence of 0.089°.
