"Photonics" comes from "photon" which is the smallest unit of light just as an electron is the smallest unit of electricity. Photonics is the generation, process and manipulation of photon to achieve a certain function and most importantly, the utilization of light as a tool for the benefit of mankind.

     From fiber optics and telecommunications to medical imaging and cancer research, optics and photonics are advancing today’s essential technologies. Based on the science of light, optics and photonics are specialized fields of physics and engineering. These technologies are prevalent in almost every aspect of day-to-day life. From your iPad screen to the inner workings of your mobile phone and high-speed Internet connection, optics and photonics are critical technologies that will continue to grow and enhance people’s lives.
