Prof. Dr. Johann-Friedrich Luy

Honorary Professor at TUM since 2007


High Frequency Technology


After completing his doctorate in engineering at TUM, Johann-Friedrich Luy joined Daimler’s research department, where he successfully demonstrated that silicon/germanium is suitable for use in the production of key components of microwaves. The integration of microwave electronics into semiconductor technology facilitated the breakthrough to cost-effective mass applications in the field of automobile radars.

In 2000, Johann-Friedrich Luy was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in recognition of his contributions to high-frequency integration. In 2007, he was appointed as professor in the TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. While at Daimler AG, Johann-Friedrich Luy was responsible for the development of data mining technologies using BigData and AI. The assurance processes he developed for the preventive securing of maturity levels have since been adopted into development processes across the globe. In 2018, he founded the start-up company COREPROG engineering (www.coreprog.de). Professor Luy has authored over fifty publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and conferences. He has supervised numerous PhDs and has been a member of expert panels at a number of institutions including, among others, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the EU Commission.
