experience and projects
M. Sc. diploma from the Faculty of Electric Engineering of the
Technical University of Budapest (TUB) in 1981 he started working at
the Technical University of Budapest, Department of Physics later at
the Department of Atomic Physics, where he was an associate
professor. He received his Ph. D. in the field of solid state physics
at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in 1985. He became the Head
of the Optics Research Laboratory in 1992.
In 2006 he
joined the Department of Electronics Technology, where he was the
deputy head of department between 2008 and 2015.
was the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and
Informatics from 2008 to 2015.
is the Dean of the Faculty from 2016.
is in the field of applied optics in particular the development and
design of acousto-optic devices and systems, surface acoustic wave
devices, optical signal processing systems, integrated optical
systems and devices. His most important results are: high speed
scanning acousto-optic spectrum-analyzers, new and high efficiency
acousto-optic mode-lockers, two dimensional deflectors and tunable
filters as well as the examination of anisotropic planar waveguide
systems containing surface acoustic transducers, circular lenses and
coupling elements. He has experience with laser systems (actively
mode-locked Nd:Cr:GSGG and Er:YLF lasers), coherent optical systems (
optical Fourier transformation, convolution, signal and image
processing), in optical technologies (evaporation, diffusion, ion
etching, lithography), in optical measurement techniques (fiber and
waveguide measurements, investigation of optical thin films, acoustic
beam profiling) and with complex optoelectronic systems (multichannel
optical processor for phased antenna arrays ).
Recently he is
active in research of automatic optical inspection systems of
electronics technology processes.
both in basic science and applied techniques are reflected in more
then 100 scientific publications, patents, know-how and technical
He worked as a
visiting scientist with professor H. J. Eichler at the Optical
Institute of the TU Berlin in 1989. He spent one year research
fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Germany in 1994
for investigation light frequency comb generation methods at the
Max-Plank-Institut für Quantenoptik, Garching.
He is the
member of the Committee of Electronics Devices and Technologies of
the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
