Research Profile

Peter Mutsaers is an assistant professor with the research group Coherence and Quantum Technology of the TU/e department of Applied Physics. He has extensive knowledge of accelerator technology and its applications. His research has been mainly focused on the role of alterations in the cellular element concentrations in the early development of atherosclerosis. He currently involved in ultrafast electron microscopy using resonant microwave cavities, laser cooled focused ion beams, and the Smart*light project, developing a compact and mobile ultrabright X-ray source.

Academic Background

Peter Mutsaers studied Applied Physics at Eindhoven University of Technology, where he obtained his MSc degree in 1985 with a study on fast neutron radiation dosimetry. He then became a researcher with the Eindhoven cyclotron group focusing on particle‐induced X‐ray emission (PIXE), microbeam applications and data processing. In 1995, he obtained his PhD with his thesis 'Design and realisation of the Eindhoven scanning proton microprobe' supervised by professors Martien de Voigt and Henk Hagedoorn. Since then he has been an assistant professor in the field of singletron and microbeam technology with various TU/e research groups. He currently is assistant professor with the research group Coherence and Quantum Technology where he is working on ultrafast electron microscopy, focused ion beams, and the Smart*light project (concerning a compact and mobile ultrabright X-ray source).
