Fully Integrated Hybrid Silicon Two Dimensional Beam Scanner | Bowers
The underlying tech behind Strobe Inc.'s (now GM/Cruise) fancy pants chip LIDAR. Uses optical phased array for one dimensional scanning, and frequency variation through a prism lens to achieve scanning in the other dimension, rather than a full 2D optical phased array (so easier to make?)

Directed energy atmospheric lens could revolutionise future battlefields | BAE S...
Using the edge of the atmosphere as a surface interface, which can be manipulated with pulse lasers to be physically shaped into lens shapes to fiddle with optics. So can be used as a focuser for lasers and ground observation telescopes, and as a diffuser for self protection/obfuscation of space assets.

Highly efficient and ultra-broadband graphene oxide ultrathin lenses with three-dimensional subwavelength focusing : Nature Communications : Nature Publishing Group
Sorta breaking the diffraction limit for ultrathin flat lens in a more manufacturable format, with fresnel rings being laser etched. I wonder if this would be applicable to DARPA MOIRE project, assuming you could make a large monolithic thin film of graphene.

太陽光の熱を朝日から夕陽まで回収し効率よく発電:報道発表資料|2013年 プレスリリース|理化学研究所
Riken's press release on the Fresnel lens solar thermal wankel rotary heat engine. Apparently the lens tech is fairly advanced, being developed as a telephoto lens for observing high energy cosmic rays, with high optical transparency and a surface roughness less than 20nm. They used a three sided lens structure (top plate and two vertical plates), called a "Fresnel Sun House" to gather light well onto a T shaped thermal absorber/heat exchanger, even when the sun is close to the horizon at sunrise/sunset.
