A smart photonic system is an application specific intelligently programmable photonic system that is able to get the job done using minimal overheads, i.e., with minimal hardware, software, data processing, data storage, data transfer, energy, physical space, elapsed time, degree of environmental pollution, human toll, etc. In essence, the system uses a minimalistic philosophy and only uses what it absolutely must use to achieve the system goal. Today, technology is evolving such that materials and devices can reconfigure themselves in an intelligent fashion to reduce the system overheads while providing an effective solution for the application. This special issue is a call to researchers around the world to share their advances that are enabling the “Smart Photonic System”. Application areas of interest using photonics are diverse and include:
- Buildings and Architecture
- Human Environment
- RF Systems
- Test and Measurement
- Wired Communications
- Wireless Communications
