Every year, we are using and producing exponentially more data. The current chip technology cannot keep up and is reaching its limits. A solution is provided by Integrated photonics – microchips based on light signals. Which have the advantage of being faster and more energy efficient, resulting in considerable savings in energy. A perfect solution for demanding data traffic and data usage. In addition, the ability to integrate various individual components onto one chip allows for a considerable reduction of size, weight and production costs and of improved reliability. Although the technology is still under development, it already offers great potential for applications in growth markets such as the datacom, telecom, automotive and mobility, medical technology and food sector. The Netherlands, and especially Brainport Eindhoven, holds a unique knowledge position in this field, which may result in a market worth billions of euros, and in thousands of jobs. Like with the development in the semiconductor industry.
