Silicon photonics is the innovative study and application of photonic systems for generating, processing, manipulating and otherwise using light for faster data transmission both between and within microchips. Silicon is used as the optical medium. Operation is in infrared wavelengths (commonly 1.55 micrometers), which are used in fiber-optic telecommunication systems. Silicon photonics, with its ultra-fast data transfer between and within microchips, will significantly determine future progress in computer technology and the continuation of Moore’s law.Silicon photonic devices can be made using existing semiconductor fabrication techniques, and because silicon is already used as the substrate for most integrated circuits, it is possible to create hybrid devices in which the optical and electronic components are integrated onto a single microchip.

Scope and Importance:
Silicon Photonics has its importance in communications and computing industries that challenged to enable massive and faster transport of information. Terabit per second is the speed at which data are transferred among multi-core processors. The electrical chip routing challenges in the computer industry have driven the interest for silicon photonics. The idea is to integrate photonic circuits into a standard silicon industry processes. In computing, integrated circuits continue to follow Moore’s law. The development of photonics integrated circuits is a solution to the forecasted roadblocks, but key issues remain. Within the communications industry silicon has been utilized as a packaging platform for hybrid integration. But the push towards transparent optical network is challenging the use of silicon photonics functionalities. In this talk I will address this arena. The state of art of silicon photonic devices and the requirements of the industry and markets increase the technology and commercial challenges for the implementation of silicon photonics and photonic integrated circuits in the computing and semiconductor industry. The advances in silicon device development for photonic circuits and the challenges for the on-chip light emission. The technology, challenges and methodologies for silicon photonics and photonic integrated circuits increase the application direction of silicon photonic for future needs.
