Management

The authorised representatives of MICIAN GmbH are:

Dr.-Ing. Peter W. Krauss : Managing director and responsible for software and product management

was born in Reisbach, Germany, in 1960. He received the Dipl.-Ing.(FH) degree in electrical engineering from the Hochschule Bremen, Germany, in 1986, the Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. degrees, both in electrical engineering, from the University of Bremen, Germany, in 1991 and 1998, respectively. From 1991 to 1995 he was with the Microwave Department, University of Bremen, Germany. His research interests were related to the computer-aided design of passive waveguide components based on the mode-matching method. From 1995 to 1999, he developed in cooperation with Microwave Innovation Group (MIG), Germany, their CAD tool. He was especially involved in the software management and the developing of the important basics of their waveguide simulation software tool. Since 1999, he has only been working with MICIAN GbR, Germany, which he co founded with Jan M. Reiter in 1998. His current work includes the microwave computer-aided (CAD) technology for electromagnetic (EM) simulations and optimizations.

Dr.-Ing. Thomas Sieverding: Managing director and responsible for customer service

was born in Lohne, Germany, in 1959. He received the Dipl.-Ing. and the Dr.-Ing. degrees, both in electrical engineering, from the University of Bremen, Germany, in 1984 and 1990, respectively. From 1985 to 1989, he was engaged in software engineering at BICC Vero Electronics, and OTCE-Consulting, Bremen.From 1987 to 1998, he was with the Microwave Department, University of Bremen, Germany, and from 1991 to 1998, he worked as an Assistant Professor at the University of Bremen. Until end of 1999, he was the Research and Design Manager of Microwave Innovation Group (MIG), which he co founded 1993 together with Prof. Arndt and others. His major contributions included implementation of waveguide components for their commercial waveguide simulation program in cooperation with Peter W. Krauss. He joined MICIAN GbR in March 2000 as associate and managing director. His current work includes CAD program development and microwave circuit design, in particular for satellite components and antenna networks.

Dr.-Ing. Ralf Beyer: Managing director and responsible for research and development

was born in Preetz, Germany in 1964. He received the Dipl.-Ing. degree from the University of Braunschweig, Germany, and the Dr.-Ing. degree from the University of Bremen, Germany, both in electrical engineering, in 1992 and 2000, respectively. During his study he worked at the Microwave Development Department of FUBA and designed components for satellite receiver. From 1989 until 1991, he has been engaged with the Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) at the University of Braunschweig, Germany. From 1992 to 2000 he has been with the Microwave Department, University of Bremen, Germany. He has been an Assistant Professor at the University of Bremen from 1998 to 2000. His research interests have been related to the computer-aided design of antennas and waveguide components, based on the finite element and mode-matching method. He joined MICIAN GbR in April 2000. His current work includes CAD program development and microwave circuit design.
