Martin Becker is a staff scientist at the Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT), Jena. He received his diploma degree (Dipl. Phys.) of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Würzburg, Germany in 1998 on Raman spectroscopy of semiconductors. Then, he joined the Group of Optical Fibers at IPHT, Jena, Germany, where graduated (Dr. rer. nat.) in 2006 at the faculty of Physics and Astronomy of the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena. During this period he specialized on the development of Bragg gratings-based optical components in fibers and planar wave guide structures for optical telecommunication. Since, he extended the fiber Bragg grating manufacturing technology to unique materials and operation wavelengths. Currently, he focuses on novel fiber optic devices for high power fiber lasers applications as well as for optical fiber sensors for structural health monitoring, chemical sensing, and biomedical sensing applications.
