Crystal innov is a European Open Innovation center in crystal growth and advanced materials (micro) manufacturing.

The center mission is pooling tools, sharing high tech facilities and providing expertise for your innovation in single crystal and bulk advanced materials.

From R&D project with academic labs to prototyping innovative crystal-based (bio)sensors, Crystal innov offers a wide range of services, such as :

  • hosting projects in technology halls,
  • pilote line installation
  • new crystal development
  • micro-manufacturing process scale-up
  • innovative crystal-based device prototyping

Furthermore Crystal innov team has specific expertise and skills in piezoelectric crystals and wafer manufacturing for main applications (resonators for Time Frequency, SAW filters, sensors, IMU, actuators, lead-free materials...). The center is able to be your partner for innovation, from crystal growth modeling to piezoelectric parts fabrication, up to small volume production (ISO 9001 compliant).

Crystal innov offers valuable services as well for :

  • (micro)manufacturing (cutting hard / brite materials)
  • single crystal characterisation (geometry, dimension, orientation, X-ray, chemical...)
