Photonics: Data & Sensing


Home » Photonics: Data & Sensing

From processing and computing
to sensing

Photons are getting closer than ever to processing cores and, in some cases, can even be used for processing. When you add machine learning to advanced integrated photonic circuits, you get a new generation of sensors for medical, environmental, and food manufacturing applications. Learn about the latest technologies and blue-sky research.
