NASA Discusses Advances in Photonics for Space and Commercial Applications


NASA is working with U.S. industry and academia to develop photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for use in sensors, analog RF applications, and computing and free space communications. PICs provide reduced size, weight, and power that is critical for microprocessors, communication buses, processor buses, advanced data processing, and science instrument optical systems, subsystems, and components.

In this 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Tech Briefs Media, an expert from NASA describes the use of PICs for integrated physical, chemical, and biological sensors, as well as lab-on-a-chip systems and remote sensing instruments.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
