Volker Jungnickel received the Dipl.Phys. (M.S.) and Dr.rer.nat. (Ph.D.) degrees in experimental physics, both from Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany, in 1992 and 1995, respectively. He has worked on photoluminescence of semiconductor quantum dots and minimal-invasive laser surgery before joining the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications (Heinrich-Hertz-Institut) in 1997. After completing an experimental 155 Mbit/s wireless indoor link based on infrared, his research is focussed on broadband multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems since 2000. He has lead the team that has demonstrated the world's first 1 Gbit/s MIMO-OFDM radio link in real-time in 2004 and world's first real-time demonstration of the new air interface specified for the 3GPP long-term evolution (LTE) in 2006. His current research is concerned with the application of MIMO in next-generation cellular systems, in particular for the purpose of distributed interference reduction. Volker has authored and coauthored more than 50 conferences and 10 journal papers and holds more than 20 patents most of which are purchased by the industry. Volker is a Lecturer at the Technical University in Berlin and a Member of the IEEE and the German Physical Society.
