This paper aims to highlight the challenging requirements when designing photonic components in the context of requirements of characterisation, qualification and long term reliability of the components to ensure that Optical systems are adequately qualified for implementation. Review of reliability testing in order to understand and eliminate some of the failure modes of High Power Laser modules and MEMS VOA are presented in this paper.
