Photonics: Photonics is the science and technology of generating, controlling, and detecting photons, which are particles of light. The characteristics of the waves and photons can be used to explore the universe, cure diseases, and even to solve crimes. It supplements electronics in the form of optoelectronics and exhibits a strong market growth, which is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. So far, photonics has achieved a deep penetration of mass markets in only a few areas, like laser diodes in CD/DVD players and related data storage equipment.
