Patrick Runge received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in computer science and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Berlin, Germany, in 2005 and 2010, respectively. From 2005 to 2007, he was with the Hymite GmbH, where he was involved in the RF design and measurement of optoelectronic packages for optical communication. In 2007, he returned to the Technische Universität Berlin to pursue the Ph.D. degree, where he investigated nonlinear effects and applications of ultralong semiconductor optical amplifiers. After finishing his Ph.D. degree, he worked from 2010 to 2011 for a patent attorney. Since 2011, he is with the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) where he is engaged in the development and fabrication of photodetectors and photonic integrated circuits based on InP. Currently, he is the head of the Detector Group within the Photonic Components Department at HHI. Since 2014 he is a member of the ECIO steering committee and serves frequently for conference subcommittees e.g. CSW-IPRM, OSA APC.
For JLT he is handling submissions on the following topics:
- Integrated optics
- Photonic integrated circuits
- InP based devices
