      I have worked on many different projects of similar scale:
      (1) making very small LEDs (100 could fit on the end of a stand of hair) suitable for very bright displays that could be used in augmented reality headsets. (2) making lasers that will be used in hard disk drive recording (this is how all your photos on the internet are stored). (3) making new types of circuits based not on electronics but on light signals. These photonic integrated circuits are used to communicate at very high speed (eg internet)
