Research Scope

The growing interest in the field of photonic materials are mainly due to its two-fold application potential. The first is the development of components (like laser and sensors), which facilitates end-user products while the other is development of innovative photonic materials, which can be used along with other conventional materials, more like composites. This research service discusses the impact of photonic materials in three key sectors, namely optical communications, consumer electronics and security & devices This research service (RS) titled “Impact of Photonic Materials in Key Applications” reviews the technology development in the field of photonic materials and maps the materials to their applications in end products in key industries.

Briefly, this research service provides:
•An overview of materials used through various processes in key application sectors.
•An overview of key drivers and challenges that could impact the commercial adoption of photonic materials.
•A technology roadmap for each application by materials and end use in the three key sectors.
•A brief snapshot of key patents that provide an insight into notable activities and global participants
•A detailed list of contacts in this field.

Key Findings

Photonic materials are expected to find high impact in the imaging, lighting and displays applications within the consumer electronics industry. These materials will also increase functionality of flexible electronics and wearable electronics.
The use of metamaterials for developing sensors and gadgets in defense and security industry can help in increasing the adoption of photonic materials in this industry.
Quantum dots and metamaterials are two of the promising materials, which is expected to have applications across optical communication, consumer electronics, and defense & security sectors.
Key photonic materials that are already being adopted include photonic crystal fibers for optical communication, liquid crystals in case of displays for the consumer electronics and; metamaterials and quantum dots for defense and security.
The speed of optical communication can be expected to increase in the range of 1 terabyte per second speed with the use of photonic materials, specifically in the optical fibers.
