Biography

Ing. David Thoen is a cleanroom engineer at the Terahertz Sensing group. He was born in Nieuwveen in December 24, 1978. In 2008 he received his BSc. Applied Physics with honors at Fontys University of Applied Sciences, Eindhoven.

He has been working as a microwave engineer at FOM Institute Rijnhuizen (now DIFFER) since 2007.

Since 2010 he is working at TUD on the microfabrication and development of far-infrared detectors for astronomy. Under professor dr.ir. Teun Klapwijk (e.m.) he worked on superconductor-insulator-superconductor (SIS) detectors for Atacama-desert based telescopes ALMA and APEX. Since 2012 he has been working with professor dr. ir. Jochem Baselmans and dr. Akira Endo on microwave-kinetic-inductance detectors (MKID) based instruments. In 2015 he joined the Terahertz Sensing group, which is led by professor Andrea Neto, Professor Nuria Lombard and professor dr. ir. Jochem Baselmans.

He has extensive experience in cleanroom process development and fabrication, vacuum and cryogenic technology, signal processing, microwave technology. In 2017 he was responsible for customs arrangements, logistics and shipment of the DESHIMA instrument from TU Delft campus to the ASTE telescope and assisted in integration and installation of the instrument in the telescope. He (co-)authored over 30 peer-reviewed papers and manuscripts.
