As per available reports about 5 relevant Journals and 8 Conference are presently dedicated exclusively to Photonics and about 34 open-access articles and 303 conference proceedings are being published on Photonics.
Photon is an elementary particle, the quantum of light and all other forms of electromagnetic radiation. It is the force carrier for the electromagnetic force, even when static via virtual photons. The effects of this force are easily observable at the microscopic and at the macroscopic level, because the photon has zero rest mass; this allows long distance interactions. Like all elementary particles, photons are currently best explained by quantum mechanics and exhibit wave–particle duality, exhibiting properties of waves and of particles. Application of photons is called photonics which involves Quantum Field Theory, Materials Science and Engineering, Photonics, Nanophotonics and Biophotonics, Nanoelectronics etc.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.
Scope and Importance:
Photon Conference provides the scope for opportunities to learn progressed by international scientists and academicians. Photonics is the science of light (photon) generation, detection, and manipulation through emission, transmission, modulation, signal processing, switching, amplification, and detection/sensing. Though covering all light's technical applications over the whole spectrum, most photonic applications are in the range of visible and near-infrared light.
Photonics the branch of technology concerned with the properties and transmission of photons, for example in fiber optics. Photonics is an area of study that associate the application of radiant energy such as light, whose basic element is the photon. Photonic applications use the photon is same to that of electronic applications use the electron. Devices that work on light have a number of advantages over those which use electricity. The speed of the photon in empty space is approximately 186,282miles or 299,792 kilometers per second no matter what the electromagnetic wavelength is. In media apart from vacuum, this speed will gradually reduce. For example, the speed of visible light is slower than they do through the outer space. Radio waves travel more slowly through the polyethylene than the atmosphere. The ratio of the speed of the photons in a particular medium to their speed in a vacuum is called the velocity factor. This factor ranges between 0 and 1 or 0 to 100% and partially depends on wave length.
The speed of light is 10 times faster than the electricity, which proves that data transmitted photonically can transit long distances in a fraction of the time, visible-light and infrared beams, unlike electric currents, pass through each other without interacting as well, so they don't show interference. A sole optical fibre has the ability to carry three million phone calls concurrently.
Photonics is an emerging technology, which focuses on the ultimate goal of providing the microelectronics world with the ultra-large-scale integration of components at a low cost and without any significant changes in their performance. This can be achieved by producing the all-silicon based components and products. Hence, silicon photonics has become an interesting preposition across the globe as it focuses on high speed transmission, low cost, and high integration of various products together such as optical waveguides, modulators, and photo-detectors. Based on the product, the silicon photonics market is segmented into silicon photonic waveguides, silicon optical modulators, silicon optical interconnects, wavelength division multiplexer filters, silicon led, silicon photo-detectors, and others. The wavelength division multiplexer filters occupy the highest share in this market in 2014; however, the silicon optical modulators are expected to grow by 2020. Several of the leading photonics companies in the world views on different technologies, and opinions about future challenges and opportunities for manufacturers and integrators of lasers and photonics products. The silicon photonics market is expected to grow to $497.53 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 27.74% from 2014 to 2020.
