About Me

Biography

Frank van Vliet was born in Dubbeldam, The Netherlands, in 1969. He received the M.Sc. degree, with honours, in Electrical Engineering in 1992 from Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Subsequently, he received his Ph.D. from the same university on MMIC filters.

He joined TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research) in 1997, where he is currently working as a principal scientist responsible for MMIC, antenna and transmit/receive module research.

In 2007, he was appointed professor in microwave integration in the Integrated Circuit Design (ICD) group of the University of Twente, where he founded the Centre for Array Technology (CAT). His research interests include MMIC’s in all their aspects, advanced measurement techniques and phased-array technology.

Frank van Vliet (co-)authored well over 150 peer-reviewed publications. He is a member of the European Space Agencies (ESA) Component Technology Board (CTB) for microwave components, a member of the European Defence Agencies (EDA) CapTech IAP-01, chair of the 2012 European Microwave Integrated Circuit conference (EuMIC 2012), founded the Doctoral School of Microwaves, and serves on the TPC of EuMIC, the IEEE International Symposium on Phased Array Systems and Technology, the IEEE Compound Semiconductor IC Symposium (IEEE CSICS) and the IEEE Conference on Microwaves, Communications, Antennas and Electronic Systems (IEEE COMCAS). He is guest editor of IEEE MTT 2013 Special issue on Phased-Array Technology, and will be the General Chair of the 2020 European Microwave Week.
