about Iris Light


Iris Light powers the Cloud through breakthrough on-chip laser technology. Data centers currently consume 2% of global electricity. This trend will only accelerate with the exponential bandwidth demands of Artificial Intelligence (AI), 5G communications, and the Internet of Things (IoT). With 1000x anticipated bandwidth growth by 2030, the dual goals of increasing capacity while reducing energy consumption pose significant challenges to both the industry and the environment.


The Iris Light solution increases the bandwidth and energy-efficiency of light chips through a proprietary, scalable method of depositing multiple lasers on a chip, all inside the chip maker. 


Iris Light is an Argonne National Lab spinout, and currently incubating in the Chain Reaction Innovations program funded by the Department of Energy.
