Global Silicon Photonics Market: Overview
Silicon photonics is the study of the photonic systems where silicon is used as an optical medium to transfer data. The study deals with a photonic system which transmits, manipulates, generates, and processes the data with good speed between the microchips. This system operates at a wavelength of 1.55 micrometer, which falls under infrared spectrum and it is mostly used for optical communications. Silicon photonics integrate three technologies together which includes micro-electro-mechanical systems, 3D stacking, and a complementary metal oxide semiconductor. The basic operation of silicon photonics is to transfer data in the form of optical rays between computer chips. Silicon photonics enable high-speed data transfer coupled with low power consumption over an optical fiber.
Global Silicon Photonics Market: Growth Factors
Increasing need for a higher transfer rate of data among many manufacturers is compelling them to adopt the silicon photonics technology to improve the processing and computational capabilities of data centers, this may lead to boost the silicon photonics market. The market will experience steady growth in the coming years as it minimizes cost and consumes low power. Many companies are highly investing in this technology in order to gain a competitive edge in the global market. However, few silicon photonics-based devices hold thermal effect problem that may hamper the performance of the devices.
