Created in 2011, winner of the State calls for projects for Shared Innovation Platforms, PISÉO is today the leading center of innovation and industrial expertise in the analysis of the electro-optical performance of components and of products, and the integration of photonic technologies. Analysis, design, simulation, tests, industrialization… Thanks to a unique combination of skills and resources, PISÉO advances the state of scientific knowledge, provides companies with strategic information and offers high value-added technical services.


At PISÉO we tests, designs, manufactures and characterizes illumination, detection and visualization systems for all sectors of activity and all applications using UV-VIS-IR optical radiation. Our experts are specialists in the integration of photonic components and materials: LEDs, lasers, detectors, imagers, polymers, glass, phosphors, surface treatments, etc.

From Component to Application

We operate across the entire photonics value chain

On the one hand, we carry out analyzes and tests intended to enrich the state of technical and scientific knowledge in the field of optics-photonics and produces reports.

On the other hand, we intervene on the entire photonics value chain through an ultra-precise and fully mastered innovation process: from the idea to the implementation of the supply chain.

Enough to accompany its customers with extreme rigor in the design of ever more innovative, reliable and efficient technological solutions.


Photonics Innovation

We master the entire innovation process from the idea to the implementation of the supply chain.

Take contact for innovative projects involving photonic technology, our experts are able to support you from the idea to the market launching.

Electro-optical characterization laboratory ISO 17025

We have our own electro-optical characterization laboratory and mobilize state-of-the-art equipment.

ISO 17025 accredited by COFRAC since 2016, it is one of the best photometry laboratories in the world. The characteristics covered by the scope of accreditation are as follows:

  • Luminous flux, color point, color temperature, intensity distribution (IES, LDT files)
  • Electrical measurements (current, voltage, power, power factor)
  • Photo-biological risk

The main standards concerned include: EN 13032-1, EN 13032-4, CIE 121, CIE S 025, LM-79 (US / CA), IEC 62717, IEC 62722-1 IEC 62722-2-1, IEC 62612 , IEC 62471, IECTR62778.

Our experts work with the most efficient calculation and optical simulation tools.

Every day, dozens of technical analyses, feasibility studies, tests and  characterizations are carried out in complete independence.


Products and Services

Technical Reports

We publish technical analysis reports of photonic components and systems, which are a valuable source of state-of-the-art information for deciding on a market strategy or defining new technical solutions

Design and industrialization of innovative photonic systems

We intervene on the entire photonics value chain: from the idea to the implementation of the supply chain, to accompany our customers in the design of ever more innovative, reliable and efficient technological solutions


Our team is composed of optical engineers continuously trained, with solid experience acquired within market-leading industrial groups. They rely on their skills and field knowledge for each project. Curious, open and sensitive to customer expectations and constraints, they work completely independently to innovate intelligently and support our customers in their innovation and product optimization initiatives.
