About the article
Dr. Ralf Biertümpfel studied Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany) and Cornell University (USA). After his diploma and his Master of Engineering in 1996, he worked on a research project in the field of heat transfer and thermodynamics and finally earned his doctorate at the Technical University of Darmstadt in 2001. Since 2001, he works at SCHOTT AG in the fields of hot forming of glass and precision optics. At present, he is the application manager for optical filters.
Steffen Reichel studied Electrical Engineering at the University of Kaiserslautern and spend 7 months at the Michigan State University, Michigan, USA. After his diploma degree in 1996, he worked as a researcher at the University of Kaiserslautern working on his doctorate (Dr.-Ing.) in the field of optical communications (fiber optics, erbium-doped fiber amplifiers). In 1999, he joined Lucent Technologies working on fiber optical communications, erbium-doped, and Raman amplifiers. Since 2001, he works for SCHOTT on several fields of optics from imaging optics, fiber optics, waveguide optics, laser optics, illumination optics, and optical filters. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and Member of the SPIE, and since 2013, he is a professor (honorary) for ‘Optics & Photonics’ at the University of Applied Science, Darmstadt, Germany. In addition, he is co-author in three books, has about 60 publications, and has 20 granted or applied patents.
