Biography

Mathias FinkMathias Fink received the M.S. degree in Mathematics from Paris University, France, in 1967, and the Ph.D. degree in Solid State Physics in 1970.

He then moved to ultrasonic medical imaging and received the Doctorat es-Sciences degree in 1978 from Paris University in Acoustics. He is now a Professor of Physics at the Ecole Superieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la Ville de Paris (ESPCI) and at Paris Diderot University.

In 1990 he founded the Laboratory Ondes et Acoustique at ESPCI that became in January 2009 the Langevin Institute. Mathias Fink is now the director of this Institute.

In 2002, he was elected at the French Academy of Engineering, in 2003 at the French Academy of Science and in 2008 at the College de France on the Chair of Technological Innovation. His current research interests include medical ultrasonic imaging, ultrasonic therapy, nondestructive testing, underwater acoustics, telecommunications, seismology, active control of sound and vibration, analogies between optics, quantum mechanics and acoustics, wave coherence in multiply scattering media, and time-reversal in physics.

He has developed different techniques in acoustic imaging (transient elastography, supersonic shear imaging), wave focusing in inhomogeneous media (time-reversal mirrors), speckle reduction, and in ultrasonic laser generation. He holds more than 50 patents, and he has published more than 300 articles. 4 start-up companies have been created from his research (Echosens, Sensitive Object, Supersonic Imagine and Time Reversal Communications)
