Prof. Dr.-Ing. Norbert Hanik
Academic Career and Research Areas
The research of Prof. Hanik (b. 1962) covers the modeling, simulation and optimization of information transmission components and systems via copper cables, fiber optics, polymer fibers, general waveguides, etc. His main interest lies in the physical optimization of optical wavelength multiplex transmission systems and fiber optic networks.
Prof. Hanik studied electrical engineering at TUM and completed his doctorate in optical transmission. He joined Deutsche Telekom’s technology center in 1995, where he headed up the “System concepts of photonic networks” research group until 2004. He was a visiting professor at the Technical University of Denmark, Copenhagen, in 2002. On April 1, 2004, Prof. Hanik became associate professor of line transmission technology at TUM’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.
