Dr. Samina Qureshi, in Journal of Advances in Science and Technology | Science & Technology


Photonics is the Science and Technology of generating,controlling and detecting Photons, which are particles of light. These photonsare used to advance manufacturing, robotics, medical imaging, next generationdisplayes, defence technologies, biometric securities, image processing,communications, astrology and much more. Light underpins the technologies ofdaily life, from smart phones, laptops and the internet to medical instrumentsand LED lighting, those all are possible because of photonics, the 21stcentury is depend much on photonics as the 20th century depended onelectronics. Photonics technology plays a supporting role in several areas ofnational interest, as well individuals. Below are some areas in which photonicshas made an impact.
