Principal Scientist at TNO and Professor at University of Twente on Microwave Integration
Frank van Vliet

I work in Microwaves. I do so as long as I can remember, and I hope to do so for many years to come. With a passion for Radio since my childhood, my professional career has focused entirely on Phased-Array systems, and in particular on pushing the technologies that make them work, enlarging and envisioning phased-array capabilities in view of future operational demands.

Professorship chair

Microwave integration (University of Twente).

Research area

My research area at the university is Microwave Technology, with a focus on integration, which typically involves non-CMOS technologies. Application areas include Phased Array Antennas for radar and communication systems, wireless point-to-point and point-to-multi-point systems, short range radio and fixed communication infrastructure. Depending on the application, interfacing to wireless, optical or digital domains is relevant.
