Silicon photonics
An ultra-minute optical circuit technology that takes advantage of the strong difference in refractive indices between silicon semiconductors - the foundation of electronic circuits - and glass (the refractive index of silicon is more than double that of glass), and which allows for ultra-miniaturization of optical switches and other optically active devices. Silicon photonics also enables silicon optical circuits and silicon electronic circuits to be integrated onto the same substrate.
