Best MSc Award 2017 goes to Douwe
- Thursday, 30 November 2017
On Thursday 30 November Douwe van Willigen received the best MSc award at the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory. Four students were nominated for their excellent thesis work: Michele D’Urbino, Douwe van Willigen, Shoubhik Karmakar and Said Hussaini. They presented their work at the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory and the audience voted for the best student of 2017.
Douwe developed a chip that makes it possible to connect 64 small ultrasound transducers to an imaging system using a single coaxial cable. His work enables 3D acoustic imaging from the tip of a catheter and is a step forward in miniaturizing 3D ultrasound probes. After his MSc Douwe continues in Michiel Pertijs’ group as a PhD candidate, working on electronics for ultrasonic flow measurement.
