XVP has been an invaluable partner to Dental Wings on strategically critical optical development and optical production transfer projects. The consistently high level of creativity, professionalism, and energy the XVP team has brought to our endeavours is truly remarkable, allowing us to accelerate our go-to-market timelines and gain significant competitive advantage. I strongly recommend XVP to clients looking for the very best in optical system consulting.

Dental Wings

XVP team members were integrated seamlessly in our R&D efforts, working hand in hand with EXFO. It felt as if they were part of our team from day one! They quickly brought expertise we did not have in house and shared contacts to improve one of our designs. XVP also acted as an independent R&D team for another mandate, developing hardware in concurrent engineering mode, helping us launch a product to market faster. A great and trusted R&D partner. Thanks XVP!


We are very pleased with the services provided by XVP, which have allowed us to significantly expand our product reach in a cost effective manner.

XVP delivered exceptional results helping iBIONICS with discovery into the unknown and solving complex problems. Their work on optical design resulted in a conceptual breakthrough foundational to the development of a wireless retinal implant. Generous team players, with world class expertise, their team is committed to the best final result.

Cofounder and past CEO

XVP have been valued partners in many projects over the years at two of my companies. They provide a mix of deeply technical as well as down-to-earth problem-solving skills required in an industrial R&D environment. Since I’ve known them, they have steadily increased the reach of their service offering with strategic hires that now constitute a real competitive advantage to any business wishing to accelerate their time to market.

Executive President
Reflex Photonics

The XVP team played a critical role in solving difficult manufacturing and design problems on one of our product lines. Their extensive knowledge and experience in photonic design, packaging and assembly processes have allowed Thorlabs to overcome these hurdles, resulting in an improved product with superior performance, yield and reliability. I highly recommend XVP Photonics.

I’ve known François professionally for many years and have always been impressed by the ingenuity and thoroughness he demonstrates in his work, and also by the intensity of purpose with which he executes his mandates. His designs and creations form a large part of ITF’s product portfolio and we are fortunate that he can be relied on to maintain and build upon them through his continued support.

By working closely with our technical staff and sharing his rich and varied experience in the world of photonics, François Séguin helped us move quickly towards a product launch. In addition to using his technical and scientific skills during these mandates, he also proved to be an excellent communicator as demonstrated through the quality of his written works and his contributions to our design review committees.

Vice-President of Technology and Marketing

As a consultant, he actively participated in the design of the iCure system, a revolutionary epoxy curing system developed by IRphotonics. The product won the prestigious International Prism Award for Photonic Innovation at Photonics West in San Francisco in 2010. He also led the development of high power hermetic cables using infrared optical fibers for military and aerospace applications. He has always demonstrated very high scientific and technical rigor.

Founder and Chief Technology Officer

Mr. Séguin has become a recognized and sought-after figure in the field of optics-photonics. As President and CEO of the Quebec Photonic Network, I have also witnessed the contribution Mr. Séguin has made and continues to make to the network’s industrial members, and the highly enviable appreciation he receives from the optics-photonics business community.

I have known François Séguin since 1999. His contributions were critical to the growth of many companies I have been involved in. His combination of expertise in engineering, physics, reliability and quality, and his unique capability to understand complex engineering issues allow him to turn engineering and design problems into solutions and opportunities…We had major issues with the technology and the design of the product. François rapidly understood the problems we were facing and implemented the solutions that allowed the company to introduce the product to market in time...
