Technologies is driving innovation in silicon photonics, an emerging technology
poised to significantly increase performance and reduce costs of optical
systems. We are headquartered in New York City, with offices in San Jose,
California and Munich, Germany.
After pursuing a
path of intensely focused research and development for two years in
stealth-mode, Elenion recently unveiled itself to the world and has assembled a
world-class team of multi-disciplinary experts. Members of our leadership team
have built and sold several companies, published papers in the top scientific
journals in the world, raised hundreds of millions of dollars of venture
capital, and have built products and deployed them to the market. The technical team includes world leaders in our space, and many members are PhD
scientists and engineers from the top schools in the world, such as MIT,
Caltech, UChicago, and Columbia.
developing next-generation photonic integrated circuit technologies and
solutions for a broad range of datacom and telecom applications. It is almost
certain that, as you read this web page, the data traveling from the server to
your computer or phone went through hardware that someone on our team designed,
built, or deployed.
This team builds
the hardware at the heart of the internet. We think that’s cool. Hopefully, you
