Due to the development of internet, optical communications is in an urgent need to explore methods and technologies that can handle optical signals without expensive optical devices. The size reduction of optical devices in order to facilitate large-scale integration and the cost reduction are the bottleneck to overcome. Applying photonic crystals to produce integrated optoelectronic devices for communication is feasible with integrated circuit processes, therefore, the cost in production of such devices is greatly reduced. This is beneficial to all the user in bandwidth. New business opportunity is thus formed to further change the communications means and life quality of human beings.
