optoelectronic technology is a new technology formed by the combination of photon technology and electronic technology. Photon technology can cause an industrial revolution that supersedes electronic technology, because it will have a deeper impact on industry and society. We review the development of optoelectronic devices and integration technologies. We compare and analyze the development and characteristics of optoelectronic technology platforms, summarize the key manufacturing technologies, introduce several representative optoelectronic devices including flexible devices, and focus on the key breakthrough technologies that need to be achieved. Through a comprehensive review of the development of optoelectronic technology, China should seize the opportunity for a transformation of the optoelectronic technology industry. By drawing on the experiences with advanced optoelectronic platforms and technologies in foreign countries, we should speed up the accumulation and reserves of Chinese industrial talents, pay attention to the accumulation of basic technology, and establish a national optoelectronic technology platform, to greatly enhance domestic levels in these regards and to achieve independent innovations with these devices.
