About integrated photonics

Photonic technology detects, generates, transports and processes light. Current uses include lasers, sensors, and fiber-optic networks.

Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) combine two or more photonic functions into a single chip to create new, faster, and more energy efficient devices. PICs are highly effective at processing and transmitting data. They can also be integrated alongside traditional electronic chips.
