About Photonic Sensor

The use of light as an instrument of precision creates numerous opportunities for sensing technology and analytics. Photonic sensors are devices that have the capability to sense light and release electrical pulses. Since their introduction, the devices have evolved continuously and are being used in several industries. The use of photonic sensing technology has the following benefits:

  • Detect and warn of biological hazards
  • Detect structural flaws
  • Improve homeland security and mitigate security threats by using wireless systems integrated with photonic sensors
Special properties such as distributed sensing and resistance to electromagnetic interference have made photonic sensors popular in commercial applications. These sensors are ideal in numerous application areas such as factory automation, automobiles, and medical devices as they are light, fast, and compact; require low energy; possess superior detection ability; and have a superior resolution compared to traditional sensors.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global photonic sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 15.72% during the period 2016-2020.
