What is optoelectronics?
It is the study of electricity interacting with light. Fiber optic communications, laser systems, electric eyes, remote sensing systems, medical diagnostic systems and optical information systems are considered optoelectronic technologies. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer is considered an optoelectronic device.
