Scientific Publications

Dr. Paschotta, the founder of RP Photonics, was originally a scientific researcher. During his time in university research, he has published over 100 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals. You find the full publication list as part of the CV.

Since having founded RP Photonics Consulting, Dr. Paschotta obviously finds less time for scientific research. However, he is still maintaining substantial scientific activities, which lead to various publications:
