These instruments not only shed new light on the problem of the irreversibility of time, they also provide original solutions to the problems of wave control in complex environments and imaging of these environments. They already have many applications: therapy, medical imaging, non-destructive testing, telecommunications, seismology, home automation, underwater acoustics, etc.
He pioneered the development of time-reversal mirrors and he developed many applications of this concept from ultrasound therapy, medical imaging, non-destructive testing, underwater acoustics, seismic imaging, tactile objects, to electromagnetic telecommunications.
He also pioneered innovative medical imaging methods: transient elastography, supersonic shear imaging and multi-wave imaging that are now implemented by several companies. Four companies with more than 140 employees have been created from his research (Echosens, Sensitive Object, Supersonic Imagine and Time Reversal Communications).
