In the past 20 years the field of silicon photonics has moved all the way from curiosity-driven exploratory research to market-driven industrial manufacturing of products. Mature technology platforms have emerged and a supply chain, from design to packaging, has been put in place. While the present capabilities can serve major markets, there is a potential for many more applications if the performance and functionality of silicon photonics can be boosted beyond the current state of the art.
