Iris Light Technologies is developing a first of a kind, color-versatile laser for the rapidly growing silicon photonics market. Our platform laser technology is an essential element for applications in optical communications, optical sensors, and emerging areas such as Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors. All of these require both specific colors (wavelengths) and coverage of a wide spectral range specific to the target application. We are currently incubating our technology in the Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI) program at Argonne National Laboratory. Through CRI, we are deploying R&D funds to leverage existing infrastructure and accelerate our technical progress. The core technology is built on patents pending from Argonne and partners.
