Cautious Optimism Is Driving Europe-APAC Trade Relations

JUSTINE MURPHY, SENIOR EDITOR, justine.murphy@photonics.com
Global economies and trade have found themselves in flux in the wake of changes in leadership in some countries as well as the U.K.’s exit from the European Union. The potential impacts of each have yet to be fully realized; however, strengthened alliances and economic development are bolstering trade relations between European and Asia-Pacific nations, offering optimism that collaboration between the two regions will drive mutual success.

Justine MurphyIn this issue, we examine partnerships in trade that are boosting market growth in Europe and in the Asia-Pacific countries, the role such ties and trade are playing in the photonics sector, and implications for the global market. “Alliances Set to Strengthen Europe-APAC Trade Relations” (read article).

In this month’s “EPIC Insights” column, EPIC’s Jose Pozo and Ana Belén González discuss the open access and packaging pilot manufacturing line, PIXAPP (Photonic Integrated Circuits Assembly & Packaging Pilot Line), which was launched as a one-stop-shop for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Europe (read article).

A piece by Contributing Editor Marie Freebody, “The Decade of the Resolution Revolution” (read article), focuses on difficulties end users are facing with the increase in applications for superresolution microscopy — despite great strides made in recent years — and how this technique is paving the way for wider imaging applications.

Researchers from CEA-LETI examine the pivotal role of silicon photonics in enabling the further development of optical interconnects needed to address the explosive growth of internet traffic. Be sure to read “Light Is the Ultimate Medium for High-Speed Communications” (read article).

Contributing Editor Hank Hogan takes a close look at the aerospace and defense sectors. In his “More Fiber Will Make Healthier Aerospace and Defense” (read article), he details existing challenges for fiber optics in these sectors as the technology is more widely used, and how the industry is responding with potential solutions.
