Semicon and quantum
Smaller, more powerful chips. This is the goal that the semiconductor industry pursues each and every day. And we’re helping them with our solutions for semiconductor equipment.
Smaller, more efficient, and more powerful chips
The challenge is to produce these chips as cost-effectively as possible. We’re the ideal partner for designing this semiconductor equipment, as we create new solutions that drive the development of our industrial partners. And we’re unlocking new opportunities for the semiconductor industry of the future.

TNO’s 2030 view: Ushering in the Quantum Era
Anyone who follows tech news has likely noticed all the recent buzz around quantum technology, and in particular, the powerful quantum computer. And although it’s often described as a ‘novel’ innovation, scientists have actually been working on it for decades, and its implications reach much farther than just unprecedented computing power.
Monitoring your health using light: TNO designs wearable optical sensors
Wearable biosensors that use light and detectors to provide real-time feedback on our health. They're not only a useful tool to prevent health problems, but some people even owe their lives to them.
TNO Starts 7-year Quantum Testing and Experimentation Program
TNO is coordinating Qu-Test, a network of RTOs and NMIs funded by Quantum Flagship, to accelerate European competitiveness in quantum technology.
LUMI-Q quantum computer will contribute to a pan-European network
A consortium by the name of LUMI-Q has been selected to host new European quantum computers. SURF and QuTech—a collaboration between the TU Delft and TNO—contribute to the project to build a hybrid high-performance computing and quantum computing (HPC+QC) platform.
European program to build world’s first quantum internet ecosystem launched
The European Commission has approved a program of the Quantum Internet Alliance (QIA) to develop a Quantum Internet ecosystem in Europe, a potential world-first prototype.
Arjen AmelinkFunctie:Principal Scientist at TNO and Professor at Free University Amsterdam on Medical Photonics
The chair focuses on the development and clinical validation of new optical diagnostic methods, with an emphasis on the interpretation of data generated by optical measurement systems based on the modeling of light transport in biological tissues.
Cor RopsFunctie:Senior Scientist Thermal and Fluidic Engineering
Cor Rops graduated his studies Applied Physics in 1998 cum laude at the research group Fluid Mechanics at the TuDelft and started working for TNO early 1999. In 2004 he started in close collaboration with the TuDelft his PhD project on two phase flow and boiling at small structures, which he successfully finished in 2009. From this research he developed a method to realise stable flow boiling within microfluidic devices. After introduction in the high-tech industry, this method is now successfully applied in chip cooling for antenna arrays and power electronics for test equipment for electrical vehicles. Currently, other application areas are explored as well such as the data centre market and fuel cell industry.
Richard VersluisFunctie:Principal Systems Engineer
Quantum technology is going through an important revolution. Now that we understand the finesses of quantum mechanics, we are harvesting its potential powers, by developing and improving technologies based on quantum mechanics. As the lead engineer quantum technology in QuTech, the advanced research center for quantum computing and quantum internet founded by TU Delft and TNO, I focus on bringing these new technologies to a higher application level, by solving issues like classical data processing limitations, thermal issues, material characterization and improvement, and scalability and reproducibility of these systems.
