What is the future of optical chip technology and markets? Dramatic changes are emerging with a shift from semiconductor technology to Mems and nano-optics, including photonic crystals. Such changes are not surprising in view of technological advances and the needs of network operators. As telecommunication networks expand, optical networking equipment must advance to meet the ever growing challenges of speed, capacity, and reliability.

At the heart of all optical networking equipment are integrated circuits. From the early days of optical networking to the present, common semiconductors have reigned as the dominant technology. However, the last few years have seen the maturation of other cutting edge, integrated circuit solutions that have been specifically designed for photonic networks and are now vying to remove semiconductors from their position of dominance. Pioneer Consulting's new report, “Optical Chips: Enabling Technologies and Markets from Semiconductors to Mems, Nano-Optics and Photonic Crystals” examines the optical chip market from semiconductors to Mems and nano-optics.
