The high-resolution imaging of the radar/ladar system is typically obtained by transmitting the wideband waveforms. These wide bandwidth waveforms are generated by modulating signals on to a frequency carrier which requires additional hardware. To counter this, we propose a semiconductor laser system that can generate a chaotic waveform with a frequency span of a few Giga-Hertz. The generated waveforms are pseudo-random and hence can yield sharp correlation peaks. These features are essential to identify multiple hotspots in close proximity.
