Prof. Dr.-Ing. Norbert Hanik
Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Dr.-Ing Norbert Hanik is heading the Associate Professorship for Line Transmission technology at TU München (TUM). His primary research interests are in the fields of modeling, design, and optimization of optical and copper-based communication systems, applying methods of communications engineering, classical and quantum physics, information theory, signal processing, and coding.
Norbert Hanik received the Dipl.-Ing.-degree in Electrical Engineering from TUM with a thesis on digital spread spectrum systems in 1989. From 1989 to 1995 he was a research associate at the TUM-Institute for Communications Engineering, where he worked in the field of Optical Communications. In 1995 he received the Dr.-Ing.-degree with a thesis on Non-linear fiber-effects in Optical Transmission. From 1995 to 2004 Dr. Hanik was with the Technologiezentrum of Deutsche Telekom, heading the research group "System Concepts of Photonic Networks". From January to March 2002 he was a Visiting Professor at the Research Center COM of the Technical University of Denmark, Copenhagen. He contributed to a multitude of Telekom-internal, national and international R&D-projects, both as a scientist and project leader. In 2004 he was appointed to the Associate Professorship for Line Transmission Technology at Technical University of Munich.
