Optoelectronics is used in many areas, including:
» Optical communication and data transmission
use light to transmit information over long distances. They are used, for example, in fiber optic cables, laser printers, and projectors.
» Optical sensors and measuring systems
use light to measure physical quantities such as temperature, pressure, humidity, and movement. They are used, for example, in industry, medical technology, and environmental monitoring.
» Optical storage and data storage
use light to record and play back digital data. They are used, for example, in CD and DVD players, Blu-ray players, and hard drives.
» Optical image processing and image sensors
use light to generate and process images. They are used, for example, in cameras, smartphones, and drones.
» Optical display technology and lighting
use light to generate images and illuminate rooms and objects. They are used, for example, in monitors, televisions, projectors, and LED lamps.
