Reportlinker.com has added a new market research report titled ‘Nanotechnology for Photonics: Global Markets’ to its offering.
Nanophotonics technologies find applications in a broad array of sectors. However, to reap full benefits of nanophotonics, the industry has to overcome various marketing, technical, and other blockades.
This report not only quantifies the potential markets for the nanophotonics technologies but also provides additional data pertaining to the size, competition, prices, and potential regulation of particular nanophotonics markets, which are helpful to decision makers and investors to make investment decisions.
The five-chapter report is an updated version of previous BCC Research report, released in 2006. The objective of the report is to offer the latest data pertaining to the commercial prospects of different nanophotonics technologies and to support the expanding technical information body. Specific objective of the report include determining the nanophotonics market’s segments that have high commercial value in the near to mid-term period between 2011 and 2016, forecasting future demands in these submarkets, and assessing their challenges to recognize their full potential to calculate their probability of commercial success.
The comprehensive report discusses the worldwide market for nanophotonics devices, in which interaction of light is taking place at the nanoscale level. Nanophotonics are closely associated to nano-optoelectronics. Hence, the report covers everything that comes under the definition of a photonic device, even if it is classified as an optoelectronic device.
Nanoscale devices discussed in the report include holographic memory, solar cells, optical amplifiers, LEDs, optical gates and switches, channel add or drop filters, and optical fibers. Companies mentioned in the report include Agilent Technologies, Applied Plasmonics, Biocrystal, Boston Micromachines, Luxtera, Cabot, Cambridge Display Technology, Carbon Nanotechnologies, Carbon Nanotech Research Institute, Colossal Storage, Clarendon Photonics, Eastman Kodak, Evident Technologies, Forge Europa, G24 Innovations, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Merck OLED Materials, Nanostructured & Amorphous Materials, Nanoco Technologies, Nanocrystals Technology, Neophotonics, Osram Opto Semiconductors, Philips Lumileds Lighting and Samsung SDI.
