Spurred by Moore’s law, the principle that the number of transistors on a microchip doubles every two years, the miniaturization of electronic components has resulted in optical devices shrinking as well. While etendue (a characteristic of light and how it diffuses) prevents the exponential size reduction of components, engineers have shrunk optical devices by combining materials and leveraging computing power now available on any smartphone. This integration has also allowed companies and research labs to produce complex devices at low costs, democratizing access to such devices for scientists and nonscientists alike.
