Else Kooi Prize

The Else Kooi Prize is given to young researchers for applied semiconductor research in the Netherlands.

The 2013 Award of Euro 5.000,- will be given to Mark Oude Alink at ICT.OPEN 2013 for his PhD research work at the University of Twente on “RF Spectrum Sensing in CMOS Exploiting Crosscorrelation”.


Thanks to the techniques of Mark, spectrum analyzers- which normally are very expensive and bulky professional machines- can be integrated on a microchip. This way, new low-cost applications can be explored, such as finding free spectrum for wireless communications, or self-diagnosis of Integrated Circuits.  


The exact time of the awarding and presentation of Mark Oude Alink is 28 November at 15.45 in the track Components & Circuits.
