Photonic integrated circuits, also known as planar lightwave circuits PLC or integrated optoelectronic devices, are components that are integrated optically and frequently electronically. Integrated optics is the name of the technology used in these gadgets. On substrates (commonly referred to as chips) made of silicon, silica, or a nonlinear crystal substance like lithium niobate, photonic integrated circuits are often manufactured using a wafer-scale method that involves lithography (LiNbO3). Numerous characteristics and technical restrictions of the technology are already influenced by the substrate material:
Photonic IC may replace electronic integrated circuits as the dominant technology for data communications (inter- and intra-datacenter communications), Solutions for autonomous driving, sensing for aerospace and aviation, and countless more applications in the future.
