New optical devices offer the potential for reductions in mass, power, and cost of data paths for on-board trigger and readout of tracking detectors. We give examples of optical modulators, MEMS beam steering devices, and optical coupling. We also present results on radiation hardness of materials as well as different approaches to using optics in triggering.
