As of 1 June, Ms Heidi Thomé took over as Head of the Optical Coating Division of RhySearch and is also a member of the Research Institute's management team. The previous head, Dr Roelene Botha, is taking up a new position outside research.

Heidi Thomé has worked in the optics and coating industry for over 20 years. After studying meteorology and physics, she held various positions at Materion Optics Balzers and its predecessor companies. She has a wealth of experience in both development and product management.

"We are delighted to have been able to recruit Ms Thomé for our team. Her expertise and many years of experience in the field of optical coating and her network in both research and industry open up new perspectives for the division. We thank Ms Botha for her great commitment over several years and wish her all the best for the future," says Managing Director Dr Richard Quaderer.

Roelene Botha will remain with RhySearch until mid-June to ensure a smooth handover.
