Researchers in the Spotlight

HTSC cooperates closely with four TU/e departments: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics and Mathematics & Computer Science. Currently HTSC has almost 50 PhD students working on their research in one of these departments. A selection of their work are presented below:

  • Boy van Minderhout is PhD student in the Elementary Processes in Gas Discharges research group at the Department of Applied Physics and my research focuses on the plasma assisted contamination control for ultra-clean vacuum systems. Read more...

  • Rick Baade from the Control Systems Technology research group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. His research is geared to the design, realization and testing of an in-vacuum substrate handling robot. Read more...
  • Lennart Blanken is doing a PhD study on repetitive and learning motion control in printing systems within the Control Systems Technology research group of the Mechanical Engineering department. Read more...

  • PhD student, Robin de Rozario (Research group Control Systems Technology of the department Mechanical Engineering), is doing research on the identification and control of position-dependent mechanical systems for large printer manufacturer Océ Technologies. Read more...

  • Lie Wang's PhD research is entitled the ‘Development of new generation linear reluctance drives: Linear reluctance motor with Advanced Power Electronics Converter’. An integrated electric drive demands low-volume, lightweight power converters; Multi-level topologies with improved output quality and fewer or no filter components are promising.
