Almae Acquires III-V Facilities, Technology

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Semiconductor IP provider Almae Technologies SAS is taking over the facilities of spin-off company III-V Lab to use its epitaxy reactors and electronic nanolithography equipment for the production of semiconductor wafers for the telecommunications market.

With over 2000 m2 of clean rooms, Almae said it will have an annual full production capacity of several thousand semiconductor wafers, incorporating new-generation laser components that support high-speed access over optical fiber.

Along with the equipment acquisition, Almae will benefit from a technology transfer from III-V Lab with operation support for the laboratory’s R&D team in laser design, fabrication and characterization.

Almae Technologies designs and produces indium phosphide wafers used to implement photonic circuits integrating semiconductor lasers. III-V develops optoelectronic and microelectronic components based on semiconductors and their integration with silicon circuits.

A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
