Photonics is the science of generating, controlling, and detecting photons, particularly in the visible and near infra-red spectrum, but also extending to the ultraviolet, long-wave infrared, and far-infrared / THz portion of the spectrum. Photonics includes the emission, transmission, amplification, detection, modulation, and switching of light, as well as light-energy conversion, i.e. Photovoltaics.
