Integrated photonics uses light for applications that have traditionally been reserved for electronics. Relative to electronics, this technology increases dependability and productivity while simultaneously reducing the size, weight, and energy required.
With a multiverse of possible usages, integrated photonics are on the front lines of the information transfer industry. Currently used in numerous capacities including telecommunications, data communications, and medical applications, integrated photonics are poised to advance information transfer to a degree similar to what semiconductor microchips did during the computer revolution 40 years ago.
Substantial economic growth tied to the advancement of integrated photonics technologies and procedures is expected both domestically and globally within the next five years.
The New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NY MEP) and the American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics) have partnered together to provide the resources necessary to assist small- and medium-sized manufacturers in incorporating integrated photonics into new products and processes. The training and support available through NY MEP makes these innovative solutions more accessible than ever.
