Developments in Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs)

Developments in Photonic Integrated Circuits

Photonic integrated circuit (PIC) is an optical chip which accommodates multiple photonic functions and is being developed as an alternative for electronic integrated circuits. Their capability to transmit data in optical medium unlike electronic ICs make them effective medium for communication in telecom and datacentre sectors. In case of sensors, light is an effective medium for material detection. PICs can be leveraged for sensing applications as well. Research and development toward improving the performance parameters of PICs and to determine new materials apart III-V materials is an on-going process. PICs are being developed in order to support the rapid advancements in technology such as wireless charging and energy conversion.
