Martin Litzenberger received a diploma in physics and a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Vienna University of Technology in 1999 and 2003, respectively. His diploma and Ph.D. thesis were on a laser interferometric method for the thermal characterisation of CMOS integrated devices.
After finishing his Ph.D. he joined the newly founded business unit New Sensor Technologies at the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology in Vienna, Austria where he was first developing novel embedded systems for industrial applications combining biologically-inspired analogue VLSI circuits and digital electronics. Since 7 years his research is focused on algorithms for novel sensor technologies and digital signal processing, with a focus on fiber optical distributed acoustic sensing (DAS). At AIT he is thematic coordinator for the topic New Sensor Technologies where he leads a portfolio of DAS related R&D projects.
Martin Litzenberger is a member of IEEE and ÖVE. He is author and co-author of more than 50 scientific publications.
