The IES in a few words

IES lab, the electronic institute of the University of Montpellier (UM), is a UMR CNRS-UM with a staff of more than 240 people (professors and associate professors, researchers, engineers and technicians, PhD students and post-docs, trainees). This lab, specialist in reliability of electronic devices and systems for the Observation and Measurement in extreme and hostile environments (Space, Nuclear, Defense and Sea), presents strong scientific skills in four areas : Infrared, Reliability, Sensors and Terahertz.

For each of these 4 scientific themes, the IES lab is highly recognized with specific scientific and technological facilities  :

- Infrared: Equipex EXTRA - fabrication of IR lasers and quantum detectors

- Reliability: CSU (Centre Spatial Universitaire) - Assembly of Nanosatellites

- Sensors: smart objects platform (more than 350 federated SMEs)

- Terahertz: HERMES platform (HF expertise platform open to SMEs)

Specialist of components and systems in the fields of electronic, microelectronic, photonic, acoustic and energy, the IES lab is able to provide scientific solutions for particular measurements in extreme and / or hostile conditions and thus participate in the resolution of societal issues of this early 21st century (energy, water, food, health, security, climate change, pollution, ...).

IES lab collaborates with several national and international universities, research centers and national institutes (DGA, ADEME, CEA, CNES, ONERA). For many years, partnerships with industrial companies such as IBM, EDF, SAGEM, AREVA, THALES, ST-MICROELECTRONICS, NEXANS, CONTINENTAL, EADS have been developed.

These academic and industrial partnerships result in numerous patents and PhD funding, and participate to the creation and development of several SMEs in its scientific area. The IES lab is one of the few laboratories to have a scientific incubator within its "Espace Start-ups".
