The History of Pollen Metrology
- Birth of Pollen
- International Development of Pollen
- Pollen Today
Founded in 2014 by Johann Foucher, Aurélien Labrosse and Alexandre Dervillé. This French deep tech, whose concept dates back to 2010, is the result of 15 years of experience at CEA, CNRS and IBM in the field of process control for the semiconductor industry by its co-founder Johann Foucher. After a period of incubation within Gate1 (now SATT Linksium) from 2013 to 2014, three DNA strands, namely: physics (Johann), computer science (Aurelien) and applied mathematics ( Alexandre) meet and decide to undertake the transition from the technological concept to a disruptive software technology of artificial intelligence and data fusion. The objective is to develop a sufficiently generic technology that can be applied to any industrial field developing innovative materials (semiconductor, 3D printing, cosmetics, building, transport …).
POLLEN set-up collaborations with the greatest french laboratories including the french national metrology institute (LNE), various laboratories of the University Grenoble Alpes (UGA) as well as various manufacturers of chemistry and semiconductor industry to model the core of the PLATYPUS™ technology from 2014 to 2017.
In 2017, thanks to a unique breakthrough technology (validated by the first customers) and the creation of a dream team (made up of very high-level experts in complementary fields of data science), POLLEN raises 2 million euros from XAnge, Kreaxi and private investors for its international deployment.
Today, Pollen Metrology is a French deeptech company specialized in Software of Artificial Intelligence oriented to the production of high-performance materials. The proprietary artificial intelligence framework makes possible the analysis automation of data flows, which are required for the development and production of microprocessors, cosmetics, drugs of the future, etc. The data handled daily by our customers are images of electron or optical microscopes, diffraction signals, process parameters (temperature, pressure, etc.).
Pollen offers to its customers the expertise of its multicultural team from different backgrounds (metrology, physics, computer science, image processing, deep learning, data fusion) to provide an artificial intelligence technology that allows them to facilitate and speed the development of these unique materials.
Pollen is currently in a phase of strong growth internationally, particularly in semiconductor, chemical and cosmetics sectors
