Reiner S. Thoma0000-0002-9254-814X
Reiner Thomä received the Dipl.-Ing. (M.S.E.E.), Dr.-Ing. (Ph.D.E.E.), and the Dr.-Ing. habil. degrees in electrical engineering (information technology) from Technische Hochschule Ilmenau, Germany, in 1975, 1983, and 1989, respectively. From 1975 to 1988, he was a Research Associate in the fields of electronic circuits, measurement engineering, and digital signal processing at the same university. From 1988 to 1990, he was a Research Engineer at the Akademie der Wissenschaften der DDR (Zentrum für Wissenschaftlichen Gerätebau). During this period, he was working in the field of radio surveillance. In 1991, he spent a three-month sabbatical leave at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (Lehrstuhl für Nachrichtentechnik). Since 1992, he has been a Professor of electrical engineering (electronic measurement) at TU Ilmenau where he has been the Director of the Institute of Communications and Measurement Engineering since 1999. His research interests include measurement and digital signal processing methods (correlation and spectral analysis, system identification, array methods, time-frequency and cyclostationary signal analysis), their application in mobile radio and radar systems (multidimensional channel sounding, propagation measurement and parameter estimation, ultra-wideband radar), and measurement-based performance evaluation of MIMO transmission systems.
