How Iris is delivering innovative laser solutions for the rapidly growing silicon photonics market.

2019-02-07 11.30.24_Edited.jpg

Today, a single solution requires multiple chips.

Some for photonics and others for lasers. This is holding back the industry. Scaling isn’t possible. Manufacturing is cumbersome. Packaging is 80% of the total cost.


Our technology enables the production of lasers directly integrated with chip-scale manufacturing.

Iris puts all of your hardware on a single chip.

I foresee significant commercial potential for the hybrid silicon laser being developed by Iris.
