LightWave Photonics : Introducing A New Era Of Viable And Affordable Microleds

Top 10 Photonics Solution Companies - 2021

A part of the semiconductor and optics arena, Photonics has come a long way from just powering displays to being utilized in some of the most complex measurement systems such as gas and dust, and LiDAR for distance calculation in autonomous vehicles and drones. Presently, manufacturers of self-driving cars and companies that require high safety measures are propelling their operations to take advantage of the quickly growing innovative technologies to prove their excellence in their respective spaces. Another area that is seeing massive transformation is LED manufacture for device screen production with OLED paving the way for the much smaller MicroLED that can produce projectable light at even smaller sizes. The real question that beckons, however, is the best steps to take in successfully implementing digital solutions to drive the better and cost-effective production of the multiple components that combine to form a complete piece of equipment.

In this edition of Semiconductor Review, our team of senior editors has worked alongside a group of photonics industry experts in understanding the best-in-class photonics solution providers and have comprised a list of the most promising vendors. These photonics solution providers have set the standards in their separate areas of expertise such as defect analysis, quality testing, monitor production, and semiconductor fabrication, to name a few. Besides, the magazines also share the thoughts of some of the leading photonics experts on the best practices to follow while initiating a photonics project. We are proud to present our “Top 10 Photonics Solutions Companies - 2021
