Profile Summary

Prof. Dr. Thomas Becker was born in 1967. He graduated in electrical engineering at the IMSAS, University of Bremen, Germany in 1995. He received his doctoral level for the work on Micro Reactor Technologies from the same institute in 2000. In 1994 he joint EADS Innovation Works, formerly DaimlerChrysler Research and Technology, in Munich, Germany. He has been working on various aspects of sensor and microsystems technologies and their applications. From 2002 to 2004 he has been Key Technology Area Manager for Microsystems, Electronics and Microelectronics. In 2004 he has been appointed as Manager for sensing related topics. Currently he is focussing on autonomous sensor nodes and energy scavenging for aerospace applications. Since 2003 he is guest lecturer for Microsystems Technologies at the private University of Applied Science in Isny/Germany. In 2008 he became Professor in the Physics Department of the same University. He is author and co-author of more than 60 publications in textbooks, scientific journals and conference proceedings. He holds about 20 patents or pending patents in the area of sensor systems. Moreover he has been acting as editor and reviewer for scientific journals. He has served also as chairman and programme committee member for several international conferences.
