Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Wilfried Hortschitz

Center for Modelling and Simulation

About the person

Wilfried Hortschitz received his master degree in 2007 at Johannes Kepler University in Linz. During his diploma thesis at the Institute for Measurement Technology he developed a new sensor for enhancing the processes on cybernetic seeding machines. He joined the Department for Integrated Sensor Systems due to his interests in sensor development and interdisciplinary working.

The topic of his PhD-thesis was the development of hybrid optical MEMS displacement sensors. This work focuses on sensor technology and was deployed particularly in the field of electric field measurement and microsystems technology.

His latest research focuses on the development of sensors for electric fields, but also on the improvement of magnetic materials through simulation.
