Building The Future With Talent & Technology

About IPIC

IPIC is Ireland’s centre of excellence for research, innovation and PhD training in photonics – the science and application of light – which today represents a 0.5 Trillion$ global industry.

Photonic integration technology is the focus of our research, spanning areas from photonics theory right through to device and system development and fabrication, enabled through our in-house laboratories and semiconductor fabrication facilities at Tyndall National Institute.

We work closely with over 30 industry partners to develop their next generation products, across Ireland’s high growth technology sectors such as ICT and MedTech, supporting their attraction to and growth in Ireland. In addition we commercialise our disruptive technologies through start-up companies and co-ordinate the Photonics Ireland National Technology Platform
