Academic Career and Research Areas

Prof. Eibert’s (b. 1966) research work is focused on the field of high frequency engineering. His goal is to develop novel and innovative applications for radio, communications and sensors by gaining greater understanding of electromagnetic processes at high frequencies. He focuses particularly on novel algorithms for electromagnetic modeling as well as field transformations and imaging methods.

After completing his studies in electrical engineering, Prof. Eibert received his doctorate at the University of Wuppertal in 1997. Following a period of research at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, USA, he was a research fellow at Deutsche Telekom’s Technology Center in Darmstadt between 1998 and 2002. From 2002 to 2005, he was head of the “Antennas and Scattering” department at the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Technologies in Wachtberg. In 2005, he became professor of radio frequency technology at the University of Stuttgart and has been full professor of high frequency engineering at TUM since 2008.
