Samuel Bucourt
President and CEO

Soon after his first experience as an engineer at Le Conoscope, Samuel Bucourt became an entrepreneur, co-founding Imagine Optic in association with Xavier Levecq in 1996. In the five short years following the debut of their endeavor, their company had already become an international leader as a provider of optical wavefront sensors. Samuel brings solid expertise in corporate management to Imagine Optic including sales-force organization, finance, strategic and business development, and growth management.

Xavier Levecq
Vice President and Chief Research Officer

Well before he graduated from the prestigious Ecole Supérieure d'Optique, Xavier Levecq had already started inventing and filing patents. Recruited while still at university by CILAS-EADS, he developed high-tech optronic systems for "StarWars" military applications based on advanced space optics technologies. In 1996, Xavier co-founded Imagine Optic with Samuel Bucourt. His work in technology development led to the patents and products that propelled their venture into an international success and his wavefront sensors are now recognized worldwide as the reference for optical metrology devices.

Guillaume Dovillaire
Technical Director and COO

Guillaume has over 12 years of experience in Shack-Hartmann wavefront metrology and adaptive optics. His career began after he finished his studies at the Institut d’Optique Graduate School by participating in the installation of an adaptive-optics system for a military project led by CILAS. He then joined Imagine Optic when the company was formed to contribute to the conception of the first HASO32 wavefront analyzer. The product’s commercial success offered him the opportunity to become the Product Manager for the HASO line in 2001. In this role, he managed the product family’s growth and developed the production tools used today. Since he was named CTO and Technical Director in 2004, he has managed the R&D team with the goal of maintaining HASO’s place as a market standard of reference as well as in the development of innovative new adaptive optics products.

Laurent Couvet
Production Coordinator

Laurent joined the Imagine Optic team, just several months after the company’s creation, after having worked in R&D on 10” Digital Optical Disk readers/writers. He has extensively participated in the conception of the company’s opto-mechanical products and created the production department in order to satisfy customer needs regarding order time, traceability and compliance. Currently, he is spearheading Imagine Optic’s quality control system with the goal of achieving ISO 9001 certification.
