Project Description

IMASONIC

IMA (Voray, Frankreich) ist ein europäischer Marktführer für Ultraschalltechnologien und Transducerlösungen. IMA verfügt über mehr als zehn Jahre Erfahrung in der Entwicklung und Herstellung von Transducern für die optoakustische Bildgebung mit maßgeschneiderten Arrays in einer Vielzahl von Konfigurationen.

Die Hauptmärkte von IMA sind die medizinischen Bereiche der Diagnostik, die medizinische Therapie sowie die zerstörungsfreie Werkstoffprüfung.

IMA ist ein unabhängiges und privates Unternehmen, ISO 9001 zertifiziert und beschäftigt heute mehr als 100 Mitarbeiter.

Mikaël Wilm PhD (M) is transducer design engineer at IMASONIC. He obtained his PhD in Sciences for Engineer in the field of ultrasound probes for medical imaging and non-destructive testing in 2004. He has worked on the modelling of ultrasonic imaging arrays, based on piezocomposites or CMUTs (capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers). At Imasonic he is involved in the development of innovative ultrasonic transducers. He has experience in the specific electro-acoustic behavior of massively periodic structures and in the modelling of ultrasound probes by several methods, including finite elements.

Rémi Berriet PhD (M) is Research Engineer at Imasonic since 1996. His background is in Mechanical Engineering. He has a 20-year experience of R&D collaborative projects. His main interest is in the design and characterisation of piezocomposite transducers for various medical and industrial applications, especially in the domain of high intensity focused ultrasound.

Bruno Klinguer (M) is Project Manager at IMASONIC. His background is in Applied Mathematics. He is involved in the development of innovative ultrasonic transducers for medical and industrial fields.

Frédéric Brochin PhD (M) is R&D Project Manager at IMASONIC. His background is in Physics and he received his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science in 2000. He is in charge at IMASONIC with European and national research projects and has been working on piezoelectric and passive materials and transducers structures.

Gérard Fleury (M) is the General Manager of IMASONIC. His background is in acoustics. He is a specialist of ultrasound transducers and their applications in medical and industrial environments. He has more than 35 years of experience in this domain, including the creation of two companies exploiting piezocomposite technologies for the production of innovative transducers.
