III-V is an industrial Research Laboratory, initially created in 2004 by Alcatel-Lucent andThales, Alcatel-lucent is one of the leaders in communication technologies (mobile, fixed, IP and Optics technologies), applications and services, while Thales is a major electronic systems company acting in areas such as defence, aerospace, airlines security and safety, information technology, and transportation. In 2010, III-V was extended with the entrance of the “Laboratoire d’Electronique et de Technologie de l’Information” (LETI) from CEA in the capital, as well as 20 people from the LETI, opening the way to hybrid III-V on Si integration. CEA is one of the largest public research organisations in France, acting mainly in the fields of low carbon energies, information technologies, health technologies, large research infrastructures and global security.


III-V conducts R&D activities in the field of micro/nano-electronics and photonics semiconductor components for different application: telecoms, defence, security, safety, space etc. Located on 2 sites near Paris (Marcoussis and Palaiseau), its facilities include 4,000 m2 of clean rooms. Their staffs are composed of around 100 permanent Researchers, plus around 25 PhD Students.



The main activity of III-V will be the design of epitaxial layers laser structures, realisation and characterisation of DFB lasers, amplifiers and MOPAs and lifetests.
