Dieter Stefan Jäger was born in Tratten/Ranten, Austria, in 1944.
He received the Diplomphysiker, Dr. rer. nat., and Habilitation degrees in physics,
all from the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität
Münster, Germany, in 1969, 1974 and 1980, respectively.
From 1974 to 1990 he has been the leader of a research group at the Institute
for Applied Physics, University
of Münster, where he became an Associate Professor of Physics
in 1985. In 1989/90 he was Visiting Professor at the University of Duisburg.
In 1990 he joined the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University
of Duisburg where he is head of the Department
He has published about 350 papers in physical and technical journals and
in books and is a reviewer for several journals. He has been a consultant to
a number of industrial and government organizations. He has been Conference
Chair of several conferences and served as the coordinator and member of the
Management Committee of ESPRIT projects sponsored by the Commission of the European
Commission. Professor Jäger is Honorary Professor of Brasov University/Romania
and Consultant Professor of Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China.
He is Fellow of the IEEE (USA) and member
of the German Physical Society (DPG), the German Vacuum Association (DVG), the
German Society of Information Technology (VDE, ITG), and the German Association
for Applied Optics (DGaO). He is correspondent of the Union Radio-Scientifique
Internationale (URSI). Professor Jäger is Chair of the German IEEE
LEOS chapter and Chair of the IEEE Microwave Photonics Steering Committee.
He is consultant of the IEE Photonics Network, member of the Photonics Competence
Center and founder of the OpTech-Net, a German Network of Excellence on optical
Professor Jäger is currently engaged in nonlinear phenomena in solid-state
devices where he is mainly concerned with nonlinear microwaves for MMIC
applications as well as nonlinear optics, ultrafast electrooptics, and
optical switching in semiconductors for optoelectronic signal processing.
His research interests include ultrafast optoelectronics for microwave
power generation and transmission, millimeter wave optical links for broadband
communication technologies and picosecond electrooptical measuring techniques.
He has also activities in the areas of optical neural technology and optoelectronics
for medical applications.
