Almae orders Riber production MBE system to expand photonic component manufacturing capacity

Riber S.A. of Bezons, France, which manufactures molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) systems as well as evaporation sources and effusion cells, has received an order for a production system for delivery in 2017 to Almae Technologies, which was spun off in October 2015 from III-V Lab of Palaiseau, France (the joint laboratory between Nokia, Thales and France's Atomic Energy Agency CEA).

Almae is increasing its manufacturing capacity for advanced photonic components that are enabling the rapid increase of traffic in optical fiber networks for deploying fiber-to-the-home (FTTH), for consumer high-speed Internet access, and for 4G mobile networks.

"Almae has the ambition to become a world leader in advanced photonic solutions for the high-speed fiber optical networks which are at the heart of tomorrow's economy and society," says Almae's CEO Jean Louis Gentner. "Almae Technologies has developed an innovative process using gas-source MBE allowing our product performance to benefit from a differentiated competitive advantage and increasing our productivity in a very challenging market," he adds. "This acquisition is a very important step in the development of the industrial platform for our young company."
