Herbert Döring - Wilhelm Exner Medaille 1975

Mikrowellen sind heute Part jeder Küche. Ihr Erfolg beruht auf Herbert Döring, der von 1942 bis 1944 den ersten einsatzfähigen Mikrowellengenerator entwickelte. Daneben nannte Döring allgemeine Hochfrequenztechnik, Ferrite, Lasertechnik und Elektromedizin als seine Forschungsschwerpunkte.

Studiert hat Döring Elektrotechnik an der TU Wien. Im Anschluss an seine Promotion war er bei Siemens und Halske, bei AEG und der C. Lorenz AG tätig. 1940 entwickelte er das Zweikammer-Klystron. 1949 habilitierte sich Döring an der TU Stuttgart in Höchstfrequenztechnik und Ultrakurzwellenröhren, ab 1950 entwickelte er Wanderfeldröhren. 1952 wurde er Ordentlicher Professor für Hochfrequenztechnik und Elektroröhren an der RWTH Aachen University, 1955/56 war er Dekan der Fakultät für Maschinenwesen der RWTH Aachen University.

Für seine Arbeiten wurde Döring u.a. 1972 mit dem Ehrenring des Verbandes Deutscher Elektrotechniker ausgezeichnet, 1993 mit dem Microwave Career Award des IEEE-USA: The Organization for U.S. IEEE Members und 1996 mit dem Österreichischen Ehrenkreuz für Wissenschaft und Kunst 1. Klasse.
Herbert Döring - Wilhelm Exner Medal 1975

Microwaves are part of every kitchen today. Their success is due to Herbert Döring, who developed the first operational microwave generator from 1942 to 1944. In addition, Döring named general high-frequency technology, ferrites, laser technology and electromedicine as his main areas of research.

Döring studied electrical engineering at the TU Wien. Following his doctorate, he worked for Siemens and Halske, AEG and C. Lorenz AG. In 1940 he developed the two-chamber klystron. In 1949 Döring habilitated at the TU Stuttgart in ultrahigh-frequency technology and ultrashort-wave tubes, and from 1950 he developed traveling-wave tubes. In 1952 he became full professor of high-frequency engineering and electric tubes at RWTH Aachen University, and in 1955/56 he was dean of the Faculty of Mechanical engineering.

For his work, Döring was awarded, among others, the Ring of Honor of the Association of German Electrical Engineers in 1972, the Microwave Career Award of the IEEE-USA: The Organization for U.S. IEEE Members in 1993, and the Austrian Cross of Honor for Science and Art 1st Class in 1996.
