Welcome to the TNO research group, Optomechatronics! Our group develops high-end optical and mechatronic systems for applications for space exploration, (satellite) communications and the semiconductor industry. We bridge the gap between new inventions from the academia and the industry. Moreover, we help partners and customers to resolve their most challenging questions, and design and develop technical solutions and prototypes.
Over the past few years, our free-space optical laser communications program has quickly expanded and has gained a lot of momentum. We have currently over 15 different subprograms, and are working with small and medium enterprises, corporations, space agencies and other research institutes, both within The Netherlands as well as in an international context. A short video about our activities can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/embed/3Ncd88vs-c4.
To ‘put a man on the moon’ and realize terabit free-space laser communication links, experimentation is at the heart of what we do. We are currently working on the construction of laser terminals and feeder stations on the ground, and in collaboration with our partners, also in space. As our new colleague, you will be working as an optical communications engineer within our dedicated team, and bring theory into practice. This is your chance to work and experiment with terabit laser communications, ground stations for optical feeder links and pave the way to future high-availability, high-throughput laser communications.
You can apply till the 6th of October. The process comprises at least two (selection) rounds. After a positive selection, we will finish off the process by discussing terms and conditions of employment. We try to complete the interviews and assessment within 4 weeks.
Then please feel free to apply on this vacancy! For further questions don’t hesitate to contact us.
