We review recent progress in the development of photonic devices and integration, with the emphasis on potential applications in microwave photonics where size, weight and power consumption reduction will be crucial to the realization of radio-over-fiber. Different material platforms such as InP, silicon photonics and silicon nitride will be compared for their suitability for active and passive component integration. Case studies in applications such as photonic beam forming will be used to illustrate the potential of integrated microwave photonics.
