Science is revolutionary. It keeps on evolving according to the need of living. Experiments, failure all of these are a part of the process to make the next big thing that’ll certainly shock the world. Most of the technologies are made to help take off the daily load from human shoulders. Also, there is a competition, and this leads to the production of some great revolutionary ideas. Ten years ago, people had an idea that by 2017 there will be flying cars, and robots will be taking over the humans. But certainly, the case is not same. There are robots, and there are cars which you can control by your mobile phones, but that is prone to accidents in the event of failure.

Science is much more than these assumptions. It operates according to the need of the hour. For example, 3-D printing machines. Five years ago people had no idea that 3-D printing devices can form the body parts to transform, but now it is used at hospitals and works fine. But it is the talk of old time. What do people think now? Where will science take us in say, next ten years? Which fields will progress and bring a revolution in the world of technology? Let’s have an idea about that.

Fields to be transformed in next ten years-

drones

Advancement in robotics and drones– the robots are currently active in hospitals and have performed some operation, been used by the police and also used for household chores. So what are the possibilities now? These robots can be more advanced and intelligent, and the cost can be decreased in upcoming ten years. They will be available to work along with people and make the work easy in every field.

Artificial intelligence– the all-time evolving inelastic based to adaptable one, these are more insightful now. Programs and technologies that have artificial intelligence develop their algorithms. AI in mobile phones and PC are much more than an app. It helps people do things easily and keep a check on what you want or need. It may take over every device, and only the voice will be necessary to operate all of the machines.

Data analytics

data

The price of cloud usage has decreased in previous years, and various companies use it to analyse data. Cloud data can be used to the creation of new assets, increased productivity and more customisation of products and services.

These are some of the fields that will be more advanced in upcoming ten years, but there may be more new things coming up in next five years for science never sit still.

A branch related to science, photonics in general word is a technology of generating electricity and various other forms of energy. The quantum unit of photonics is a photon; it is involved in cutting-edge users of different elements such as optics, electro-optic devices and lasers. It is a part of physical science. Most of these photonic are under the near-infrared and visible light. Photonics also explores different wavelengths, x-rays, UV, gamma rays to infrared light. Photonics deal with the manipulation of photons.

Relationship of Photonics with other fields

photonics circuit

The term photonics is related with optomechanics, optoelectronics, quantum electronics, and electro-optics. It connotes to research and development together. Because of its being related to quantum information, and employs the photonic ways. Also, the topic is closely associated with optics. It connotes- property of light, application of optics, the analogy to electronics, etc. photonics connotes the device and circuits that deal with both optical and electrical functions.

Why is photonics critical?

The application is significant and broad to enable technologies. The carriers are lasers, which are used for drilling, binding, cutting of metals. Also, the fire cables allow the light to pass through cables. It also produces radio and microwave singles along with it, and coherent light beam’s bandwidth can carry far more insurance.

Fields using the photonics

Here are some of the fields that use photonics as a major part-

Agriculture– it uses a remote sensing to detect the crops with large scale. It also uses infrared imaging to keep in check all of the food production.

Construction– It scans all of the site topography, helps in reading bar codes on the items sold. Also, the three-dimensional analysis is used to track the progress all over.

Engineering (micro and nano technology)- photonics are used to make lasers which help in the manufacture of electric devices, engines, motors, circuits, computers, etc.

Alternate energy– photovoltaics are used in solar electric machine panels. Recently it has improved its cost efficiency and reliability that it will help in making the great contribution in the world of alternate energy or green solution.

Information technology– the heavy use of optics in data storage, switching data, and transmission of data using fibre-optics network technology at its best.

Chemical technology– depends on molecular optical spectroscopy for ultra-short laser pulses to induce chemical vapour deposition and plasma etching to support photonics.

Bio technology– it uses optical spectrometers to verify biochemical compositions and monitor all the biotech process.
