    RESEARCHER IN THE NIKHEF DETECTOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT GROUP : July 2015 – Present


    Work focused on the research and development of novel pixelated charged particle and photon detectors, aimed at high energy physics research. The detectors are based on a new form of electron multiplication transmission dynodes coupled to the Timepix 3 chip. Specific tasks include:
    - Conceptualize, design, build and commission advanced automated, vacuum based, electron beam testing facilities allowing for the measurement of transmission secondary electron yield and work functions for thin film membranes;
    - Test and analyse the response of advanced membranes, and membrane structures, in order to understand the underlying microphysics guiding their operation;
    - Development of modified Timepix1 and Timepix3 chips, as needed within the Membrane project;

    - Testing, analysing and documenting detector system performance;
    - Membrane project representative at the Medipix collaboration;

    - Supervision and teaching for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students; and

    - Development of CeBr3 and SrI2 scintillator crystals. 3” CeBr3 crystals have been realised with an energy resolution close to LaBr3 and a significantly lower background. The crystals were successfully coupled to a SPM specifically designed for high blue photon efficiency (parallel ESA activity development);
    - Development of a solid state, B based, thin film neutron detector. Further investigations and discussion with interested industrial parties regarding commercialisation are undergoing;
    - Development of in-house testing facilities; planning and performing experiments at large scale European testing facilities (National Laboratories); development of data analysis pipelines for prototype instruments;

    - Supervise M. Sc. Students.


    M. SC. STUDIES: Sept. 2004 – June 2006

    The studies where directed towards semiconductor technology and physics (major), and optoelectronics and photonics (minor). The degree project concerned investigations of the physical principles guiding the operation of novel quantum dot incorporated into quantum well IR detectors developed within the project. Investigations included:
    - Identification and sequencing of the physical principles leading to the flow of photocurrent in the novel devices;
    - Tunnability of energy detection range with variation of the applied bias;
    - The effect of electrode configuration on the above mentioned phenomena;
