Christoph Dyroff

Ph.D, Electrical Engineering, University of Karlsruhe

Dr. Dyroff received his Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from the University of Karlsruhe in Germany where he developed laser spectrometers for laboratory and airborne measurements.  Together with Peter Werle and the group of Alan Fried at NCAR he was using the Stark effect to suppress optical interference fringes in formaldehyde measurements.  He also developed a laser spectrometer to measure isotopologues of water vapor on aircraft.  He continued his research at Karlsruhe Institute of Techenology where he built and deployed several laser spectrometers on passenger and research aircraft.
