Silicon photonics is the integration of optical waveguides, filters, modulators, receivers, splitters, and related functions on a silicon die. The primary applications are in fiber-optic communication and optical sensors. This special issue will give a historical background, a tutorial, and state of the art progress in industry and academia in this new field. The issue will clearly identify what has been successful commercially, what hasn’t been, and what technologies are the most promising for the future.
