As of 1 February 2023, Dr.-Ing. Tobias Menold has taken over the management of the business unit "Systems Engineering" at the IFSW.
Tobias Menold studied physics and mathematics at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen. After working as a research assistant at the Institute of Physics at the University of Tübingen, he moved to the central research department of Robert Bosch GmbH.
Supervised by the Institute of Photovoltaics at the University of Stuttgart, he obtained his doctorate with a thesis on crystal defects in laser-processed silicon. He then worked as a research engineer in the central research department of Robert Bosch GmbH. The main topics here were laser micromachining of semiconductor materials and transparent materials for use in micromechanical sensors and in quantum sensors. In the context of an additional postdoctoral position at the Institute of Physics at the University of Tübingen, he also worked on the systems side in the field of optical quantum sensors.
