Photonics is far behind electronics in maturity. There are no large RAM type memories, the circuits are orders of magnitude larger than electronics IC circuits, the functionality is comparatively low. But it appears that few or none of these factors are fundamentally impossible to overcome, and perceiving the enormous potential in photonics, the field continues to be an area of dynamic rapid development. In this paper some of the emerging possibilities that exist are explored, and the possibilities to utilize these comparatively new phenomena to widen the application envelope of photonics technology and generate functions not normally associated with photonics are briefly discussed. These developments could lead to quantum leaps in photonics devices, to complement the forceful engineering improvements.
