Abstract

We review recent breakthroughs in the silicon photonic technology and components, and describe progress in silicon photonic integrated circuits. Heterogeneous silicon photonics has recently demonstrated performance that significantly outperforms native III/V components. The impact active silicon photonic integrated circuits could have on interconnects, telecommunications, sensors, and silicon electronics is reviewed.
