dr.ir. J.J.A. Baselmans

Terahertz Sensing (THZ), Department of Microelectronics

Expertise: Senior Instrument Scientist


Jochem J.A. Baselmans (male, born 1974, native of the Netherlands): Has a PhD degree in Physics (summa cum laude) from the University of Groningen. The subject of his thesis was to study the microscopic properties of Josephson Junctions made from Superconductors and normal metals. After his Ph.D. he was a post-doctoral researcher at SRON Groningen where he worked on the development of hot electron bolometer mixers, the most sensitive heterodyne receivers for frequencies above 1.5 THz. In 2004 he moved to SRON Utrecht and started the Dutch effort on Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors (MKIDs), He now leads the MKID research, which has grown to be a collaboration between SRON and TU Delft as senior instrument scientist within SRON with a part time position in the THz sensing group. He is involved in several international collaborations and instrumentation projects, in particular he is end responsible for the detector development for the aforementioned AMKID sub-mm camera. He has co-authored more than 80 scientific papers, of which 3 are Nature family papers.
