An efficient collaboration in Photonics, Optronics and Nanoelectronics

III-V Lab is a private Research & Development laboratory dedicated to III-V activities.

Its staff amounts to approximately 130 persons.

Both located at the heart of the Paris-Saclay Scientific campus, and at the heart of Minatec campus in Grenoble, III-V Lab covers investigation from basic research to technology transfer for industrialization and concentrates in a single entity the most advanced industrial research capabilities in the field of III-V semiconductors in Europe.

The collaboration is at the creation of III-V Lab, jointly established by Nokia, Thales and the CEA under the French “Economic Interest Grouping” (GIE) status.

III-V components are at the core of systems for Telecoms, Defence, Safety & Security, and Space applications

III-V Lab takes advantage of the commonalities between the technologies developed for different markets addressed by Thales and Nokia, such as Telecoms, Space, Defence and Security. Learn more >

Epitaxial wafers, GaN and InP transistors, sources (DFB laser diodes), detectors (APD avalanche photodiodes), Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA), multiplexors, Analog to Digital Converters (ADC) … a large variety of semiconductor components or services

III-V lab offers pre-commercial and customized production of III-V components or epitaxy wafers (MBE, MOVPE) for leading edge innovative products.

Moreover, our unique business model of Industrial Laboratory will enable you to get fast proof of concepts in Research & Development mode. See our complete offer.

III-V Lab has strong competences and established track record in R&D from advanced modeling to transfer to production in the field of III-V SC (GaAs, InP, GaN …) and their integration on Si for applications. See our expertise.
