Priv.-Doz. Dr. rer. nat. Volker Jungnickel


    Volker received doctorate and habilitation degrees in physics from Humboldt University Berlin in 1995 and in communications engineering from Technical University Berlin in 2015, respectively. He joined Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in 1997 where he is currently leading the Metro-, Access-, and In-house Systems group. Volker contributed to high-speed optical wireless communications, the first 1 Gb/s mobile radio link, the first real-time trials of LTE and the first coordinated multipoint trials. His research is focused on both, optical and wireless communications. Volker has been leading and is involved in numerous national and European industry and research projects.
