Integrated photonics allow designers and manufacturers to put thousands of photonic components (such as lasers, detectors, waveguides, modulators, electronic controls, and optical interconnects) together on a single chip, allowing capabilities that were not previously possible.  Photonics is used in a wide range of applications including: telecommunications, laser based radar, Datacom, sensing, and many others.  It currently powers the Internet as we know it today, provides significant reduction in size, weight, and power while dramatically improving performance and reliability.
 
Our speakers and panel of experts will discuss the opportunities and challenges in pursuing this emerging technology, the implications of increased data transfer, the unmet needs, and the supply chain scale up required to make it happen.
