Axel Schulzgen received his PhD in Physics from Humboldt-University of Berlin, Germany. Since 2009 he is Professor of Optics at CREOL, University of Central Florida. His research interests include optical fiber devices, components, materials, and structures with applications in fiber laser systems and fiber optic sensing. Professor Schulzgen is a member of the Optical Society of America, the International Society for Optics and Photonics SPIE, and the German Physical Society. He currently serves as topical editor of “Applied Optics” a journal of the Optical Society of America.
