IMPACTS OF PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGIES ON APPLICATIONS

Photonics is a thrilling technology with applications found really everywhere! Products relying on photonics technology are found in photovoltaic, lighting, communication, defence, medical diagnostics and treatments, environmental monitoring, transport, and many more. You read about it regularly in the news. Developments of LED for vertical farming optimizing the light spectra for the growth of each crop, long-range lighting for cars reaching up to 600 meters, visible light communication enabling for example indoor positioning and guidance systems to patients in a hospital, superluminescent LED for medical applications as broadband light sources for in vivo imaging, … these are all exciting emerging technologies. Photonics is like electronics 40 years ago, it’s a key enabling pervasive technology, and we haven’t yet exploited the full potential. Entrepreneurs and visionaries, we welcome your contribution to the truly amazing world of Photonics!
