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.
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.
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 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.
