I love my smartphone.
When I started university, mobile phones were relatively new. I turned 18 and got my first phone – a Nokia with both calling and texting capabilities. A few years later, I upgraded to a newer model. This one had a built-in FM radio and the keypad had a blue backlight. It was the high-tech...

Similar to the success of dense electronic component integration towards creating VLSI circuits, the photonic and optoelectronic industry is following similar integration schemes, terming the name “photonic integrated circuits” (PIC). However, all-Silicon PIC cannot currently complete all the functions. Alternatively, III-V platform, such as InP material system, still occupies a...
