Photonics - what does it mean?

The technology of light.

Photonics deals with the generation, transmission or guidance, change, amplification and detection of light. Therefore, this term is often used synonymously with optoelectronics or integrated optoelectronics. Given the advance of optical technologies in production processes today’s conception of photonics must be defined more broadly.
