Sébastien Blais-Ouellette

CEO - Photon etc.

Sébastien Blais-Ouellette completed a master’s degree in particle physics at the University of Montreal and a doctorate in astrophysics in co-direction between the University of Montreal and the University of Aix-Marseille. It was then as a researcher in the astronomy department of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) that he developed a technology using volume Bragg gratings to combine images and optical spectra of an object or of a sample in order to understand its nature.

This is how Photon etc. was born from the desire to reveal hitherto invisible aspects of our universe. The company has, since its foundation, extended its expertise in several fields such as life sciences, materials sciences, the industrial sector or the environment.
