The increase in the adoption of photonics is gradually replacing electric conductors—which are used in semiconductors for high speed transmission systems—with silicon photonics.
The rise in optical transceivers devices developed using silicon photonics has assisted in the development of transmission speeds of over 100Gbps, which is expected to have mass adoption and support the development of high-performance computing with increased efficiency. These devices are being predominantly used for image and capturing, as well as for intelligent lighting solutions such as OLED technologies.
In our full report, “2018 Photonics Research Review,” we explain in depth what’s happening in several segments of the photonics industry.
However, if you’re looking for a quick overview of what’s happening in photonics—including the fast-growing fiber optics industry—you’ll find today’s blog helpful.
We provide quick insight into the main trends occurring in three of the fastest-growing segments in the industry:
