Dr. Andreas Wienke takes over as Head of the Optical Components Department

As of June 1, 2021, Dr. Andreas Wienke has taken over as Head of the Optical Components Department at Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) from Dr. Lars Jensen, who has moved to industry.

Dr. Andreas Wienke started at the LZH in 2011 as a scientific employee in the Laser Development Department. In 2016, he moved to industry as a development engineer, returned to LZH in 2017, and took over first as Head of the Optical Systems Group in 2018 and then as Head of the Ultrafast Photonics Group in 2020. Dr. Wienke studied physics at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster and received his PhD in physics from the Leibniz Universität Hannover in 2016.

Dr. Wienke is looking forward to the new challenge and will contribute his extensive experience in all areas of laser development – from cw fiber lasers to ultrashort pulse fiber and solid-state lasers to additively manufactured optical systems – to advance the Optical Components Department, which was restructured in 2021.
