In the early 2000, I worked implementing (for the first time in France) adaptive optics on a high-power laser. This was made in the frame of a PhD thesis, following which the student created a startup (PHASICS) that has developed into a successful company (http://www.phasicscorp.com/). More recently, I helped the creation (in Jan. 2014) of another company "Light Stream Labs" (http://www.lightstreamlabs.com/), which aims to promote the expertise of the LULI laboratory in the realization of laser-matter diagnostic and targets systems.
