Please contribute your submission via Please mark that it is a contribution to Special Issue on Photonic Integration and Optoelectronics Convergence in the cover letter and “Manuscript Comment” field during submission.

Submission deadline: 31 January 2023

Integrated photonics consists of integrating multiple photonic devices/functions on a single Photonic Integrated Chip (PIC), while optoelectronics convergence is building the bridge between photonics and microelectronics. Empowered by various nanofabrication techniques on diverse innovative material platforms, remarkable advances have been made in photonic integration and optoelectronics convergence in the last decade. Those exciting progresses took place in the areas of materials, processing techniques, innovations on both passive and active devices, chip architectures, levels of integration complexity and density, and beyond. Integration offers size and cost reduction, faster processing speed, larger information capacity, higher energy efficiency, more versatility, and consequently broader impact to the human society. Various miniaturized devices are made available enabling better existing applications, new emerging applications, and opening new market opportunities in communications, biomedicine, sensing, computing, automotive and metrology, etc.

This special issue aims at capturing the most exciting advances in the leading edge of photonic integration and optoelectronics convergence, including new material platforms, new fabrication and characterization technologies, new device physics and architectures, new design principle for miniaturized components, micro- and nano-photonics devices, the rising and potential applications. We hope to provide an overview as well as insightful perspectives of the field by collecting contributions from leading experts and major industry players to promote the breakthrough science and impactful applications in photonic integration and optoelectronics convergence.
