Silicon photonics builds on the momentum of silicon electronics to deliver to photonic integration what was lacking: a generic integration platform. Silicon-based nanophotonic ICs tremendously increase the integration scale, and the functionality per chip, compared with their counterparts in other material systems (glass, III-V semiconductor, etc.). This will drive adoption of photonic integration by a wide range of volume applications with increasing requirements in size, weight and power consumption.
