Silicon photonics for biomedical applications The increasing need for point-of-care diagnostic and therapeutic devices opens great opportunities for silicon photonics. Silicon photonics allows to miniaturize relatively complex optical devices and make their cost affordable. With light one can measure many different physiological parameters or image tissue in three dimensions, all in a non-invasive or minimally invasive way. A photonic chip can also be integrated in a catheterized device, thereby extending the application range manyfold.
