Uwe Vogel became skilled worker in semiconductor microelectronics (Funkwerk Erfurt) in 1983, received diploma in information technology (TU Chemnitz) in 1991, doctoral degree in biomedical engineering in 1999 (TU Dresden). After visiting Center for Applied Optics Studies at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (Terre Haute/Indiana, 1992) and a position in hearing research at Dresden University hospital (1995-1998) he has been with Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) in Dresden/Germany since 1998, starting there as analog IC designer. Since 2000 he has managed an Analog/Mixed-Signal IC design group, and later on has founded OLED-on-CMOS activities mainly focusing on the design of OLED-on-CMOS devices and applications, backplanes, OLED displays (microdisplay, near-to-eye display/augmented-reality, 3D displays), OLED display driver IC, high-speed data transmission, MEMS-CMOS integration. In 2010 he has been appointed head of the newly formed business unit “OLED microdisplays and sensors” inside IPMS’ Center for Organic Materials and Electronic Devices Dresden (COMEDD), being dedicated Fraunhofer Research Institution since July 2012.
