Silicon Photonics is an emerging field in the semiconductor industry.  It involves the use of silicon wafers as substrates to implement optical functions, as well as electrical to optical conversion, and optical-to-electrical conversion.  We discuss the various silicon photonics structures, including passive elements, resonant structures, modulators, sources and detectors.  We also discuss various processes for producing silicon photonic integrated circuits.
