Bachelor or Master Thesis Optics (m/f/d) – LiDAR Optics Development

Part time, starting as soon as possible

Your Topic

LiDAR systems measure distances by stopping the time a laser pulse needs to travel from the sensor to an object and back. By conducting more than 1 Million distance measurements per second, a 3D point cloud of the surroundings of the sensor can be created in real time.

At the heart of the sensor lies the optical system containing an ultra-fast pulsed laser diode, collimating optics and a single photon detector. If you are interested in Optics and want to learn about cutting edge LiDAR technology then get in touch with us. We always have interesting topics to work on.

Blickfeld is a Munich-based startup company founded in 2017 with the vision to provide autonomous systems the eyes to see the world: We develop revolutionary scanning LiDAR systems and detection software for environment perception. Our unique solution enables countless scenarios like autonomous transportation, mapping, robotics, and smart and safe cities.
