Career Webinar with Christian Reimer: From electro-optics to a start-up company

Christian Reimer, Co-founder and Head of Product at HyperLight and OSA Ambassador

The OSA Student chapter together with FFF will host a career webinar again, this time with Christian Reimer, Co-founder and Head of Product at HyperLight and OSA Ambassador. 

Christian Reimer will give a talk with title: Electro-optics with thin film lithium niobite and what it is like to work at a start-up company.

In the scientific part of his talk, Christian will give an introduction to the field of integrated photonics with thin-film lithium niobate, with a  focus on electro-optic applications, as well as recent progress on transforming the field from chip-based proof-of-concept realizations for wafer-scale production.

In the professional development section, he will then share his experience transitioning from academia to a start-up company. He will talk about differences and similarities in the work environment, what to expect in terms of tasks and responsibilities, and explain how salaries at start-ups can include combinations of equity and incentives.

Christian Reimer´s mini bio:  Dr. Christian Reimer is a physicist and entrepreneur working in the fields of nonlinear optics, integrated photonics and quantum optics. He received graduate degrees from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, and the National Institute of Scientific Research in Canada. He then worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University, before becoming Co-Founder and Head of Product of HyperLight Corporation. HyperLight, a Venture-Capital funded start-up out of Harvard University, is specialized on integrated lithium niobate technologies for ultra-high performance photonic solutions.

The webinar will be on the 9th of December at 16:30 via zoom.
