studied physics at the University of Stuttgart, FRG, gaining a Ph.D. in 1971 and habilitating in 1976. After this he spent some time at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart and also in Grenoble working with Professor Dxansfeld before returning to Stuttgart University to become Professor of Physics in 1981. Since 1986 he has been the Departmental Head of Applied Physics at Hoechst in Frankfurt, FRG.

Basic principles of the present optoelectronic research activities at Hoechst AG are presented in this contribution. Within the diversified broad band spectrum of optoelectronic materials and applications our interest is focused on new types of polymer optical fibers and nonlinear optical device principles using organic Langmuir–Blodgett films and electrically poled polymers. The basic principles and the limits of the present research and development activities which, have a high market potential are outlined.
