Jochem Baselmans (1974) is senior instrument scientist at the SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research where he works since 2002 within the Technology program. He is also, since 2015, Associate professor in the THz sensing group at Delft University of Technology. He graduated in 1998 on at the University of Groningen and received his PH.D. (summa cum laude) at the university of Groningen on 2002, entitled: ‘Controllable Josephson Junctions’. He started in 2002 as post-doctoral Instrument Scientist at SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research where has worked until 2004 on Hot Electron Bolometer mixers, very sensitive heterodyne radiation detectors for frequencies between 1 and 5 THz. In 2005 he moved to SRON Utrecht and started working on Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors, after a 3 month visit to the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA. In 2015 Jochem Baselmans received an ERC Consolidator grant to develop an advanced imaging spectrometer based upon MKIDs. He now leads the Dutch effort on the development of Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors. Dr. Baselmans published in excess of 100 papers.
