Silicon Photonics Wafer Market

Silicon Photonics Wafer Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

Silicon Photonics Wafer Market: Introduction

  • Silicon Photonics (SiPh) is a material platform that can be used to manufacture photonic integrated circuits (PICs). Silicon is utilized as the key manufacturing element.
  • Silicon is integrated into silicon photonic (SiPh) wafers to drive photonic components in photonic circuits
  • SiPh materials are grown and processed primarily on Si wafers to form mesa structures. The selective epitaxy growth offers the possibility of depositing structures on a patterned Si wafer, which can grow mesas after the manufacture of the waveguide. The grown mesa is a detector, modulator, or laser.
  • Its low-power consumption capability has increased its adoption in applications such as high-performance computing, telecommunication, and data centers
  • The proliferation of 5G technology is expected to boost the need for high bandwidth in order to improve network communications and increase the demand for silicon photonic wafer technology. This helps increase the demand for SiPh wafer.
  • Silicon photonics wafer are utilized in applications of metrology and sensors, optical switch fabrics, thermal imaging devices, spectrometers, 3DICs/integrated optoelectronic chips, optical filters, couplers and splitters, etc.
