The successful applications of optics in communications and in consumer electronic products give us great confidence in, and renewed expectations for, optics and optoelectronics. We hope to continue making new and better systems by combining the complementary abilities of these two fields. Optics excels in some areas where electronics is weaker, such as in communication of information. The challenge—and the opportunity—is to get the best out of both. However, this creates a demand for new optoelectronic devices.
