Edmund Optics® (EO), one of the premier manufacturers of precision optical components, optical assemblies, and imaging components, strengthens its position in the European market with the addition of Dr. Boris Ecker. Supported by Edmund Optics’ global team of imaging experts, Dr. Ecker, Imaging Solutions Engineer, will directly service the growing Imaging and Machine Vision application needs of our European customers.

Fluent in German and English, Boris Ecker holds a Ph.D. in physics, obtained for his work on high-energy lasers and plasma physics at the University of Mainz, Germany and the “GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung” in Darmstadt, Germany. In the industrial environment, he has gained experience as an optical designer in process analytics, where he was responsible for creating optic designs, as well as for the application requirements of domestic and international customer projects.

At Edmund Optics Dr. Ecker will offer his support and expertise to customers and partners regarding technical questions and assist with the implementation of their projects.
