Pilot Photonics

Pilot Photonics is a progressive photonics product development company based, since 2024, in DCU Alpha in Dublin, Ireland.

We design and build unique laser and photonic integrated circuit (PIC)-based products that exceed the capabilities of products currently on the market. Pilot Photonics’ innovations are based on a decade of photonics research at two centres of excellence, the Tyndall National Institute and Dublin City University in Ireland. Our core technologies and applications have been peer reviewed and published in more than 100 publications, including Nature Communications and Science Advances. Pilot Photonics is supported by Kernel Capital, Infinity Capital, AIB Seed Capital Fund, the Irish state agency Enterprise Ireland, the EU through the European Innovation Council, and the European Space Agency.
