Klaus Irgmaier Met His Death in a Tragic Accident
July 19, 2013 (PO19). On June 28, 2013, we lost our colleague and friend Klaus Irgmaier in a tragic accident at his home.
Klaus was born on December 23, 1966, in Munich. After graduating from school he studied physics at the Technical University of Munich where he graduated in 1996. During his PhD thesis, he designed and established test rigs for measuring the microwave surface impedance of HTS films with spatial resolution and characterizing the high frequency properties of HTS coatings as a function of composition.
In 2000 he joined THEVA and was responsible for the quality assessment of films and later for the entire infrastructure of the company, including IT, safety, and the production plant.
