Burkhard Schiek

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Burkhard Schiek (born  October 14, 1938 in Elbing ; †  March 9, 2013 ) was a German university professor for high frequency technology .


Born just before the Second World War in what was then the German Reich belonging East Prussia , he had to leave the country in 1945. He studied electrical engineering at what was then the Technical University of Braunschweig , now the Technical University (TU), and graduated in 1964 as a graduate engineer (Dipl.-Ing.). Two years later, in 1966, he became the Doctor of Engineering (Dr.-Ing.) PhD . In between 1964 and 1969 he was a research assistant at the Institute for High Frequency Technology and dealt with frequency multipliers , parametric amplifiers , varactor - phase shifters and the development of integrated microwave phase shifters.

From 1969 to 1978 he worked in the group for microwave applications in the Philips Research Laboratory in Hamburg on semiconductors - oscillators , noise of oscillators, integrated microwave circuits and microwave systems. From 1978 he was professor for high frequency measurement technology at the Institute for Electrical Engineering at the Ruhr University Bochum and remained so until his retirement in 2003. He headed the high frequency measurement technology working group and researched industrial applications of microwaves. He did pioneering work in the research of high-precision high-frequency measuring systems and supervised numerous diploma and doctoral students. Even after that, he remained closely associated with high-frequency measurement technology. He died at the age of 74.
