Silicon photonics uses chip-making techniques to fabricate photonic circuits. The emerging technology is coming to market at a time of momentous change. The need of the Internet content providers to keep scaling their data centers is becoming increasingly challenging; the chip industry is facing a future without Moore’s law; while telcos must contend with a looming capacity crunch due to continual traffic growth. Each of these developments is significant in its own right. Collectively; they require new thinking in the design of chips; optical components; and systems. Such change also signals new business opportunities and disruption.
Notwithstanding challenges; silicon photonics’ emergence is timely because it is the future of several industries. For the optical industry; technology will allow designs to be tackled in new ways. For the chip industry; silicon photonics will become the way of scaling post Moore’s law. New system architectures enabled by silicon photonics will improve large-scale computing and optical communications.
