  • Polygon Physics announced the closing of a funding by ITIC

    Tematys is glad to relay this good news about Polygon Physics, a company which manufactures cutting edge ion and plasma sources for the semiconductor and the photonic industry. Along with this agreement, Polygon Physics has demonstrated the potential of its unique technology through the signature this year of contracts with three major companies in The US, in EU and in Korea.

    It is now 14 years since Tematys’ associates performed the first market study for Pascal Sortais, the founder of Polygon Physics, as he was still researcher at CNRS. Today, the relationship is still vivid and Tematys is proud to have backed the company at many important moment of its life, especially for the last 2 years. All Tematys’ team wishes the best to Polygon Physics and encourage anyone to have a look on its amazing products (

  • Participate in the European Photonics Survey 2020 ❕


    (Please note it concerns the companies that have an office or a manufacturing activity located in Europe.)
    Tematys, together with Photonics21, is performing a market study on behalf of the European Commission to enable a good understanding of the current state of #Photonics in Europe.

    We would kindly ask you to participate in a survey which aims to gather key data for a comprehensive overview of photonics companies in Europe. Furthermore, the results will provide a baseline for advocating in favour of photonics current and future impact towards decision-makers as well as public and private investors. The final study will be available at the end of 2020.

    You can access the survey here:

    Only aggregated data will be used for the analysis: no individual company information will be presented or dispatched without authorization. The survey is open until 20th September 2020 by the end of the business day.

    Appreciate your time and efforts!

  • The SPIE – TEMATYS Imaging and sensing marketplace

    Date: Monday March 30, 2020

    Join this new industry event for senior level executives, investors, and other industry stakeholders seeking an in-depth understanding of the global marketplace for imaging and sensing. This Executive Seminar delivers a review of current applications, markets, and emerging opportunities based on the unique combination of TEMATYS’ photonics markets expertise and the extensive industry connections of SPIE.

    High level speakers are invited to detail their view of technological trends and emerging businesses of their market. First, an in-depth analysis of Imaging and Sensing components & systems is presented with segmentation of applications as well as market figures and forecast. Then, a keynote talk is given by a major player on his strategic vision of imaging & sensing evolution.

    The afternoon program focuses on two “hot” imaging and/or sensing topics, namely for 2020 1.Autonomous Driving & ADAS in Automotive and 2. Artificial Intelligence and Imaging. For each “hot” topic, three key players will share their view and discuss with the audience about new opportunities and incoming challenges.

  • Press Release – Creation of the research association: Freeform Optics – Research & Solutions


    On September 12, 2019, the General Assembly for launching the research association “Freeform Optics – Research & Solutions” (FO-RS) was held in Créteil (France), at the offices of ESSILOR. FO-RS brings together companies and academic institutions wishing to join forces to promote and advance knowledge in the design, modelling, manufacturing, metrology and integration of freeform optical components. The objective of the association is to bring together scientists and industrial companies around concrete needs expressed by member companies.

    About freeform optics
    Freeform optics are optical components that no longer have an axis or centre of symmetry. Beyond their use in ophthalmology, astronomy and lighting for several decades, they have appeared in precision optical systems today, from automotive lighting to AR/VR devices. The use of freeform reduces the size of system, adds functionality and/or increases performance. Today, they constitute a disruptive technology that the FO-RS Association intends to address collectively.
