Manfred Eickhorst

Manfred Eickhorst studied applied physics in Hamburg, Germany and got his MSc Physics 1969. He founded SYSTEM EICKHORST after this and received various patents for photom etric colour determination of diamonds. More patents were granted for m icroscopy, spectroscopy and lighting. This lead to the design and worldwide marketing of an innovative manufacturing range of optical instruments and lighting technology.

His publications on lighting for gems, jewellery and gemmology are covering substantial new insights for the gem community. At international conferences of GIA, ICA and gemmological or lighting associations his contributions for the professionals are respected since 40 years.

The challenge of new technologies lead to m ore designs of light and optics. This generated another application field in the domain of Low Vision for impaired vision people. Today Manfred Eickhorst's sophisticated luminaires are a daily aid for the enhanced vision of those who are handicapped.
