Silicon Photonics: Present & Future Perspective at IPR

By Shamsul Arafin | Posted: 28 June 2013

III-V/silicon hybrid lasers, silicon-itself lasers and III-V/silicon photonic integrated circuits (PIC) - in general, silicon photonics is the research area moving forward at a great speed over the last couple of years. Why such a great speed? Because a number of ever-demanding applications like optical interconnects, long haul communication systems, and conventional CMOS technology need added bandwidth, which could be easily realized by this growing research area. In addition, currently researchers are thinking about the integration of the silicon laser into chips that could be used for medical and security applications.
