Integrated Photonics Across the Infrared

Mirios provides versatile and broadband photonics solutions to the mid- and long-wave infrared regimes. With world-leading infrared integrated photonics expertise, we aim to provide low size, weight, and power solutions for infrared technologies across commercial, space, and defense sectors.

Silicon Photonics Advantage

Our innovative integration technology, developed at UC Santa Barbara, brings quantum cascade lasers, interband cascade lasers, and conventional band-to-band lasers to silicon wafers. Our silicon photonics solution means fully integrated silicon photonic systems with the best lasers for the application.

Mirios is a recipient of contracts from the US Air Force and NASA.
