The company

FEBUS OPTICS is an innovative French manufacturer specialized in distributed optical fiber sensing systems. FEBUS provides systems and solutions for the integrity surveillance of infrastructures for the Civil Engineering, Oil & Gas and Geothermic markets. The technologies patented by FEBUS OPTICS use state of the art optical physics to measure temperature, strain and vibration of a structure or soil over tens of kilometres. Robust and easy to use, opto-electronic devices deployed with Febus Optics’s solutions are fully “plug and work”.


Role in the project

FEBUS in MEET will develop and demonstrate a solution for thermal remote sensing applied to geothermal operation.

Vincent Lanticq completed his Ph.D. at TelecomParistech and his Engineer studies at Institut d’Optique Graduate School in Paris. His research interests lied in nonlinear optics and distributed optical fiber sensing. He attended several international as a speeker and published sereval scientific articles in journals such as Measurement Science and technology or Optics Letters. He was the instructor for IUT students on topics in optical sensing technology.

Before creating Febus Optics in 2015, Vincent entered the sensors industry en 2009 with CEMENTYS for 5 years. In this small-size company, Vincent started to develop sensing solution and managed a technical team that grew from 2 people in 2010 to 10 peoples in 2014. He left in 2014 in the aim of designing the first technical drawings of FEBUS-G1 system.

Vincent is the proud and obsessed father of a son and a daughter. In addition of that all-encompassing-change, Vincent enjoys playing tennis and accordion.

Pierre Clément has a Master’s degree in Physical Instrumentation at the University of Bordeaux, he is an optoelectronic engineer in the R&D Team at FEBUS OPTICS.
He acquired theorical and technical skills, particularly in optoelectronic, during its internships at SUEZ Environnement and at the laboratory IMS (Integration from Material to Systems) in Bordeaux. He has started a PHD with Febus Optics and the French laboratory Télécom ParisTech in december 2016.


After obtaining his Higher National Diploma in Optical Instruments at Levallois, Nicolas Skalinski was able to study and work on Optoelectronic equipment and precision mechanics, in particular within the company BLET Measurement Group. Subsequently, he joined THALES Communications & Security as part of his Professional Quality License, where he will be required to set up and maintain protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD). Force of proposal, he is in charge of the mechanical design (CAD) and the assembly of our devices.


After obtaining her Master’s degree in geophysics at the EOST engeneering school, Camille Jestin worked for Petroleum GeoServices onboard seismic vessels as seismic data quality control engineer. She then started a PhD in geophysics at the Institut de Physique du Globe in Strasbourg. She worked on the experimental study of rupture propagation along seismic faults and defended in November 2018. Since December 2018, she works within Febus Optics as engineer in geosciences, for the application of optical fiber solutions to geophysical purposes.
