I am not sure what is so special about manufacturing of optical devices...why not robots or supercomputers? or biotechnology? if anything optical devices require precise alignment, not suitable for high cost labour force in USA...Kris

We checked, and the report contains no references to Infinera. However, this doesn't invalidate the report's conclusion that we need to revive optoelectronics manufacturing and make greater use of optoelectronics in areas like additive manufacturing.

Have the authors of this report never heard of Infinera and PICs? They should google these terms.

As we have reported, optics and photonics are key areas where the U.S. should be focusing on reviving its manufacturing base. Several efforts are already underway to created "trusted" facilities for advanced optics manufacturing for sensitive applications. The National Academies' report will hopefully serve to bring more focus to these efforts while highlighting the necessity of returning at least some optics manufacturing to the U.S.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
