Pilot Photonics, the home of fast tunable lasers, has a team of 24 physicists and engineers, including 9 at PhD level. This team, working since 2015, has designed, produced and patented a novel comb laser following a decade of academic research produced by two Irish photonics centres of excellence, Tyndall National Institute and Dublin City University. The academic research was exclusively licensed to Pilot Photonics in 2014 and thus the company’s proprietary comb laser is now encapsulated in the Photonic Integrated Circuits designed by us and fabricated by three European III-V foundries.
In recent years the company has further evolved its technology to offer fast tunable lasers in the C-band and O-band, high frequency-modulated lasers and integrated comb laser assemblies in miniaturised, monolithic formats or as part as the LYRA range of software-supported benchtop laser modules.
Pilot Photonics is located in Dublin, Ireland.
