cross section technology, photonics
Explanation:
Photonik = photonics

The following two definitions are from _The Photonics Dictionary_ :

photonics

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes
light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources,
fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of
photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and information processing.
__________

cross section

Calculation of the probability of an interaction between two types of particles, such as light absorption, excitation or energy transfers. The
probability that one incident particle will interact as it passes through the target layer is defined by the cross section multiplied by the number
of target particles per unit area.
__________
