Rudolf Saathof is working at the department of Optomechatronics at TNO on adaptive optics for laser satellite communication. TNO Optomechatronics designs, realizes and tests mechatronical systems for optical applications requiring extreme stability, highly accurate and fast motion, in extreme environments, for applications in astronomy, semicon and for nuclear fusion.
Saathof has a Master’s degree in mechanical automation and mechatronics at the University of Twente. His PhD thesis was on adaptive optics for EUV lithography at Delft University of Technology. He worked as post-doc researcher at the Technical University in Vienna, on active vibration isolation, nano-metrology and optical satellite communication.
