Profile Summary

Myun-Sik Kim received a Master degree on Mechatronics from Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), Korea in 2004 and a PhD in Photonics from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in 2011.
Since January 2019, he works at Axetris AG (Switzerland) as Senior Application Engineer. Axetris is a world’s leading manufacturer of microlenses and Micro-Optics. He is a senior member of the SPIE, and a member of the OSA (Optical society of America), EOS (European Optical Society), and OSK (Optical Society of Korea).

His expertise is “interferometry and metrology” and his research interests include interdisciplinary subjects in micro- and nano-fabrication and photonic systems.

He is the author of a book chapter edited by Prof. Emil Wolf, Progress in Optics volume 58, 2013, 25 peer-reviewed internal journals, 20 SPIE proceedings, and numerous conference presentations.
