Magnetostatic Wave Drag on Elektrons in a Hybrid Sample of YIG and InSb

I started my work in 1958 at Grundig in Hamburg, learning all the electron current physics in vacuum tubes and RF technique.  

Camera 'Fernauge' with resistron 1958

The subway station Mönkebergstrasse was the first subway station in town we have installed a TV camara and a monitor-

In July 1963 I went to C. Plath Litton in Hamburg, inertial navigation technique for the German Starfighter F 104.

In the years 1968 -1970 I take part on the development of the inertial gyro compass PL41 (left) of high accuracy for marine boats


I did the Computer test equipment for the PL41

A final test in 1970 around Helgoland on a speedboat of the German Bundeswehr has shown a breakthrough in accuracy of gyro compass technology.

Compass PL41 testing in the North Sea around Helgoland in April 1970.
The speedboat was running manoevres at 30+ knots 4 times 84 minutes North-South 'Schuler' periods.
It was  great success of team work.

Bundeswehr speedboats (1970)

It was done  

  Litton PL41 platform 1970

  compass PL41 is still - after 39 years - in production   and in use  -   p.e. in boats from Israel .  


In July 1970 I went to the Phillips Research Lab in Hamburg as assistant to Dr. B. Schneider

My lab in 1970 measuring 2 GHz spin waves in YIG (Yttrium iron garnet) single crystals.

Holographic data storage in LiNb0

Multiple holographic picture storage in LiNb03 (1977)




With colleagues

In a 1mm thick LiNb03 single cristal of 5mm edge lenght 109 bits/cm3 of data or 100 pictures can be stored out of focus (1978).

In March of 2011 it was said that the capacity of ferroelectrica could be several billion (1012) data points per square inch ( ~ several  1011bit/cm³ )
(Science DOI: 10.1126/science.1200605)

Volume holography very high density picture storage in LiNb0

Three volume-holograms written (from a slide) und reconstructed with the upper setup using two wavelengths from an
 Argon Laser (blue und green) and one wavelenght from a Krypton Laser (red) in a LiNbO3 cristal (Size of 3 X 4 X 5 mm). (1979)

The crystal (right) was coated with a layer, to increase the total transmission power.
