Delft University of Technology
Martin Slaman graduated in engineering from the Hogeschool van Utrecht, in 2001, in the field of electronics and computer science. He carried a project on the characterization of photovoltaic sensors at the institute of microelectronics IMEC, in Leuven. At the same institute, he pursued works on infrared detectors and camera systems and, from 2001 to 2003, at the spin-off company XenICs. Thereafter, he joined the Condensed Matter Group, at the VU University Amsterdam, as a research engineer on a fibre optic hydrogen sensor project. He focused on the use of metal hydride switchable mirrors and optical fibres to detect hydrogen below the explosion limit. Currently, he is working for both Delft University of Technology and VU University Amsterdam. He specialises in hydrogen detection, hydrogen purification membranes, fibre-optic micro machined devices and solar-thermal collectors.
