Grand prix IMT-Académie des sciences for Jean-Louis de Bougrenet de la Tocnaye, president of the Optics Department at IMT Atlantique

On 22 November 2022, the French Academy of Sciences awarded the 2022 prizes and medals at an extraordinary ceremony beneath the dome of the Institut de France in Paris. During this event, the research work of Jean-Louis de Bougrenet de la Tocnaye, head of the Optics department at IMT Atlantique, was rewarded.

"I am very grateful to the Académie des Sciences and the Institut Mines-Télécom for this award, which I am proud to share with my colleagues, students and doctoral candidates. This award is a recognition of the dynamism of our engineering schools, which must offer a broad range of transdisciplinary knowledge to face the multiple challenges of modern society. I hope that this prize will encourage other young scientists to embark on the adventure of new technologies, which are ever more inseparable from human beings," said Jean-Louis de Bougrenet de la Tocnaye.

Professor Jean-Louis Bougrenet de la Tocnaye, who specializes in optical information processing and diffraction, now devotes his research activity to human vision and the engineering of intelligent materials and components. This research is applied to a new generation of prostheses and cybernetic visual assistants based on instrumented contact lenses helping with visual restoration and the development of bio-embedded augmented vision devices.
