Profile Summary

Emmanuel H. Hugot is a French astrophysicist.[1] known for his contribution to the developments of new technologies that help to improve telescopes used by professional astronomers around the world. This includes the development of more efficient curved detectors, but also improvements in the manufacturing methods for optical elements and active optics systems.
The technologies developed by Hugot and his team are used on the SPHERE instrument mounted on the European Very Large Telescope, as well as the coronagraphic instrument of the future NASA's Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope, which are used to detect exoplanets.
He is the co-founder of the SME CURVE s.a.s., which commercializes curved and freeform CMOS sensors.
