Profile
Summary
Dr. Simon Thibault received a BSc in physics engineering in 1994 and a MS in physics in 1995 from Laval University (Québec, Canada). He completed his PhD in optical system design in 1998 with the same University and after five years as head of the optical design department at the National Optical Institute (INO) in Québec. He joined ImmerVision (Montréal, Canada) in 2005 as principal optical designer and Director – Optical Division. He has authored and co-authored 12 patents and over 100 technical communications and papers for renowned optics conferences and journals. Simon is involved in several international conference program committees dealing with optics and is frequently invited as an expert speaker. He created the first ImmerVision panomorph lens design (IMV1-1/3) suitable for mass production, authored numerous scientific papers on the subject and is responsible for ImmerVision’s panomorph lens design certification program (CPOP). His interests and skills include wide angle optical imaging system design, lens design process, optimisation, optical testing, stray light and photometric/radiometric analysis of visible, near IR and IR optical systems. Simon is chair holder since 2008 of the new NSERC industrial research chair for lens design at Laval University.
