Fundamental innovations in optics are rare but make a lasting impact.
At Cailabs, we are a dynamic and passionate team, united through a common goal: resolving the problems of our partners by using Multi-Plane Light Conversion technology (MPLC).

Cailabs’ technical skills are based upon the efforts of more than 15 doctors in physics. In addition, it is through the past experiences of the big names of optics and new technologies (Huawei, Keopsys, Manlight, Quantel, Photonetics, etc.) that Cailabs has become an industry expert.

This combined knowledge provides essential photonic solutions to today’s industrial challenges.

Cailabs has +40 staff.  


Three co-founders



Jean-François Morizur, CEO

Before founding Cailabs 2013, he was Senior Associate at the Boston Consulting Group in the Paris office. Jean-François holds two Doctorates from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie and the Australian National University and is a graduate of Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. He co-invented the fundamental concept of MPLC during his PhD at the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel. For this invention and the start of Cailabs, he was selected in 2016 among Forbes 30 under 30 Science & Healthcare Europe. He also received the Norbert Segard Prize in 2015 and the Ernst & Young Born Global prize in 2017.




Guillaume Labroille, CTO

Guillaume Labroille graduated from Telecom ParisTech and gained PhD degree in Physics from Ecole Polytechnique, France. He turned the concept of MPLC into prototypes for telecommunication and industrial laser applications. He co-founded Cailabs during his post-doctorate at the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel.




Nicolas Treps, Scientific Advisor

Nicolas Treps is a Professor at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie. As Jean-François Morizur’s PhD supervisor, he co-invented the fundamental concept of MPLC and he was then instrumental in setting up the project to turn the MPLC into a telecommunication prototype at the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel. For his participation to the inception of Cailabs, Nicolas received the Jean Jerphagnon Prize in 2013.
