About the Speaker

Since 2015 - ongoing: Optics Design Engineer in the group “Diode Lasers and Optics Design” at Fraunhofer ILT
Since December 2020, I’m part of the optics system design team at the ILT where a satellite-based wind lidar is being developed within an ESA-project.

Apart from space-borne lidar lasers, the group Optics Design and Diode Lasers we deal with beam shaping for terrestrial laser applications such as automotive lidar, welding in the spectral range, IR-illumination, fast beam scanning applications and frequency stabilization of multimode diode lasers with in-house fabricated Fiber-Bragg-Gratings.

2010 – 2015: RWTH Aachen University, Physics, M. Sc 
M.Sc. Thesis on multiplexing and simultaneous frequency stabilization of high-power diode laser modules with Volume Bragg Gratings
