Optical Engineer as Co-Founder*

*The application process is gender-neutral.

APICBEAM display technology creates free-floating images and videos in mid-air for use in digital communications. Unlike conventional technologies, APICBEAM does not present the image information on a two-dimensional surface, but encodes it in a thin line of light using optical dispersion. The generated image appears like a hologram, can be viewed from all directions and keeps facing all viewers at all times.

APICBEAM is an award-winning high-tech start-up from TU Munich, Germany. APICBEAM was selected as an outstanding research-oriented project by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy. APICBEAM will be fully funded by EXIST Transfer of Research starting in April 2019.
