Paper Abstract

Photonic integration significantly reduces power consumption, cost, and size while it enhances reliability and functionality. As modern networking and computing systems require high-performance, low-power, and agile optical communications, photonic integration is emerging as critically important technology for future networking and computing. On the other hand, the main challenge with photonic integration lies in the yield and process-compatibility. This paper reviews the impact of photonic integration in optical communications, discusses the challenges, and probes the future prospects for photonic integration.
