Photonics at Eindhoven Science Café

On Tuesday evening, Photonics was the central theme at the Science Café of the Van Piere bookshop in Eindhoven.

A lecture about technology and science, this time about the ‘Photonic chip’, was given. TU/e-professors, Ton Backx and Meint Smit, discussed the chip. They think its development will lead to a revolution.

Currently, most chips work on electricity. Data is sent by transmitting electrical currents. With these photonic chips, the data is transmitted via light. That is much faster than electricity.

Self-driving cars and other technical ingenuity are all possible thanks to this technique.
