IRMMW appoints Prof. Dr. Alfred Leitenstorfer as 2020 Button Prize Winner
TOPTICA congratulates our long-term cooperation partner Prof. Dr. Alfred Leitenstorfer to the 2020 Button Prize, a very prestigious award. It will be presented at the IRMMW in Nov. 8-13, 2020
Dr. Leitenstorfer has been instrumental in setting up the fiber laser activities at TOPTICA starting in 2003, in particular he has been devising us in the use of highly nonlinear fibers (HNLF) for the generation of coherent broadband and tunable continua, which also form the basis of the TOPTICA DFC Core Optical Frequency Comb Technology.
First at the Technical University in Munich and then at the University of Konstanz he has been generating important contributions to the TOPTICA product portfolio.
We are very proud to see him recognized now by his peers and can only echo: well deserved.
