From an industrial perspective; namely imaging and spectroscopy, photonics represents a driver for productivity for companies which introduce these new technologies in their manufacturing and production process.
It facilitates both an increase in production speeds by smoothing global industrial processes and by replacing isolating solutions, and also an increase in production reliability by introducing non-invasive, real-time inspection solutions that can be integrated within inspection loops in industrial processes.
Reliability achieved by this aspect of photonics increases end consumer safety, ensures compliance and reduces environmental impacts (treatment and analysis of waste and industrial effluents).
