Quentin BRONCHART has a general education in physics and specialises in materials science. He acquired this specialisation during his thesis at the ONERA Microstructure Study Laboratory, where he worked on phase transitions in superalloys following a theoretical and numerical approach.

As a patent engineer, his broad scientific background has allowed him to understand a wide variety of advanced technical fields.

In microelectronics, Quentin’s work has focussed on technical fields ranging from the early stages of microelectronic component manufacturing, especially by molecular bonding, to the integration of these components in a manner related to thermal management issues, including resistive memory cells. In a previous job, he was in charge of LED-related applications, mainly for Asian industrial groups.

He also worked on smart cards, their manufacturing process and ways of improving their security for users.

He has a comprehensive understanding of the field of renewable energies, his expertise ranging from photovoltaic cell optimisation to eco-friendly infrastructure design, including renewable energy storage management.

In mechanics and electronics, he has worked especially on fluid distribution devices, particularly for large French manufacturers, fluid purification devices and non-destructive testing devices for research laboratories.

During his missions, Quentin has been led to develop some technical skills in signal processing, cryptography, biometrics, lithography, 3D printing and plastics.

With 10 years of professional experience in the office, Quentin assists his clients in defining their intellectual property strategy and deals with drafting applications and their review procedures, liaising with businesses’ IP departments as well as inventors who are less familiar with IP.

Quentin BRONCHART regularly participates in international conferences, especially with the aim of meeting and selecting foreign colleagues working for Hautier IP.


Shortly after his doctorate, Quentin became a patent engineer at one large Parisian firm and then another, working on behalf of major companies.

Quentin Bronchart then moved to the Grenoble region and joined the Arjowiggins company to put his skills in the field to good use there. He then joined our team.

In 2016, Quentin became head of HAUTIER IP’s Grenoble office.
