Workshop: Quantum Technology

Department: Quantum
Speaker:  Thorsten Last
Studies: Ph, Inf, EE

Quantum Technology is a relatively new field of physics and engineering in which quantum mechanical effects are utilized for practical applications. The goal of TNO’s QT department is the nurturing and supporting of this emerging industry. Its current expertise is two-fold: 1) Design and development of quantum devices and 2) quantum systems engineering (software and hardware). A good example in which both of these both competencies are applied is our Quantum Inspire project. Quantum Inspire will be QuTech’s platform for collaboration and co-development in Quantum Computing.

Workshop: EBL2 LABTOUR Nano Instrumentation

Department: Nano Instrumentation
Speaker: Jacqueline van Veldhoven
Studies: CE, ME, Ph

In the semiconductor industry, printing of chips on wafers (lithography) is done by projecting a pattern on a wafer using light. In the ever continuing effort to produce smaller chips, using light with a small wavelength is highly advantageous. The latest lithography machines use Extreme UltraViolet (EUV) light, which is highly energetic, and difficult to produce. In order to investigate how materials and functional elements of lithography machines respond to exposure to EUV light, TNO has built the EUV BeamLine 2 setup (EBL2). In this machine, not only can samples be exposed to EUV light, but there is the possibility of in-situ analysis of the sample surface, i.e., without breaking vacuum, by X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS). During this tour, we will visit the EBL2 cleanroom where the principles of EBL2 will be explained.

Workshop: Space Challenge

Department: Space System Engineering
Speaker(s): Ton Maree, Floris van Kempen, Remco den Breeje
Studies: EE, Ph, ME. AE

On one side oxygen would freeze, while on the other side the sun blasts its intense heat and radiation. You’re in vacuum and have just survived the controlled continuous explosion called launch. Now the mission really starts, and you need to stabilize and condition the sensitive instruments and make sure the scientific systems work exactly as designed. Together with colleagues of the Optics, Optomechatronics and Space Systems Engineering departments we enable scientists to keep track of the health of our planet, to make discoveries and transfer the data back to earth.

TNO has an almost 60 years long history in developing optomechatronic instruments for Space and Science. All of those projects, were never done before and were accomplished using state-of-the-art or purposely developed technology. Brought together by a team of people, each with their own unique expertise and collaborative energy, such that the team performance is so much better than the sum of the individuals.

Curious? Learn about what TNO does in Space during our workshop. We will showcase our emerging technology and developments in Optical Satellite Communication and Additive Manufacturing!
