Abstract

Public awareness about the industrial impact of new technologies and their social and economic consequences has been dominated in the past by microelectronics. Whilst it is evident that microelectronics is the most important technology today and has still not reached its peak, other new technologies are gaining ground and might become as important as microelectronics in an industrial and economic sense. One of these new technological families will be the technologies of light as is shown above.
