Dr. Thomas Puppe / Senior Development Engineer , TOPTICA Photonics AG
Thomas Puppe is Senior Development Engineer and Fellow in the Laser Reference group at TOPTICA Photonics AG. During the past 15 years he has worked on frequency-converted diode-laser systems, pulse- and cw-THz technology, optical frequency combs, ultra-narrow linewidth lasers and system integration of laser systems for quantum technologies. He has worked on several technology and publicly funded research projects and holds several patents. Recent projects include optical THz generation based on the agile-tunable comb-locked optical frequency synthesizer, a promising engine for precision 5G/6G technologies. Prior to joining TOPTICA, Thomas had more than 10 years’ experience of working in the field of experimental quantum optics research. He holds a, M.Sc. from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, a diploma in physics from the University Konstanz, and a Ph.D. from the Technical University of Munich working on cavity quantum electrodynamics at the Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum Optics.
