Organic photonics

Organic photonics is the study of light and how it can be used to create and control electricity. Just like a regular light bulb, organic photonics works by using light to create electrons. In organic photonics, light is used to create complicated networks of tiny tubes and wires called "waveguides" that can control the direction and intensity of the light and turn it into electrical signals. These signals can be used to control things like computers, video screens, and sound. Organic photonics is a newer field of technology, but it has already made a lot of progress and is being used in many different types of products.
