Oliver Pfuhl

Hi, I am an optical engineer and astronomer working for the European Southern Observatory in Garching, Germany.

My work focuses on  instrumentation for large telescopes. I am currently working on astrophotonics and fiber-fed spectrographs.

I have played a leading role in the design, assembly, integration, testing and commissioning of the 2nd generation VLTI instrument GRAVITY.
