Welcome to the Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC)
We are a Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Research Centre that brings together over 100 researchers from the Tyndall National Institute, Cork Institute of Technology, Dublin City University and University College Cork to develop new light enabled technologies. Our work focuses on developing the next generation of highly-compact and miniaturised photonics technologies in order to tackle some of society’s greatest challenges, especially in the areas of Information Communications Technology (ICT) and Health.
- Revolutionising the speed of data transfer for the continued growth of the internet
- Delivering new smart medical devices for improved patient outcome
- Developing highly compact instrumentation for point-of-care diagnostics and wearable devices
Working alongside our industry partners in the ICT, medical devices and diagnostics sectors, IPIC’s world-class research team aims to deliver fully integrated solutions to companies, which will increase economic activity, drive job creation and develop technologies which will significantly improve all of our day to day lives.
