Photonics technologies and products that have been based on semiconductors have experienced significant growth over the past decade, with examples from many consumer and fiber communication products that contain; lasers, displays, solar cells, and LEDs.? This talk will review the status of green photonics as it relates to the photonics field, and will explore how the technologies will develop into more exciting products over the next decade.
One example of a new green photonics opportunity is figuring how to put photonics technologies onto large silicon wafers.? The talk will show that compliant, lattice matched rare earth oxides (REO) for GaN-on-Si and Ge-on-Si offer a scalable solution that is cost effective and exciting.
â?¢ Ge-on-Si using REO will enable large, low cost semiconductor platforms for multi-junction high efficiency photovoltaic, solar cells, GaAs based photonics for communications, and GaAs electronics on silicon wafers.
â?¢ GaN-on-Si using REO will enable large, low cost semiconductor platforms for energy efficient Power FETs and high performance LEDs for solid state lighting
Green photonics technology and market philosophy has been evolving for years as a large portfolio of engineers and scientists strive for energy efficiency, cleaner solutions and improved health in their designs.? Traditional photonics segments such as fiber communications, photonic lighting, solar, optical networking, and photonic device integration make up some of the green photonics segment.? Data presented from OIDA based in Washington DC., will show that many classic photonic fields will become more ‘green’ through more efficient product design over the decade.
