Hybrid Silicon Photonics and Electronics Solutions for Communications, Sensing, and Imaging
Silicon photonics offer large bandwidths and low-loss delay, while integrated electronics can provide gain and complex signal processing with much lower overhead. Here, we will discuss a few examples of such hybrid solutions to demonstrate the potential of a more holistic approach to silicon integrated systems.
