Expertise: Emerging Electronic Materials

Themes: MEMS Technology, Micro/Nano System Integration and Reliability


Sten Vollebregt was born in Delft, The Netherlands, in 1984. He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. (both cum laude) in Electrical Engineering in 2006 and 2009, respectively. For his master thesis, he investigated the growth of carbon nanotubes at NanoLab, Newton, MA, USA and AIXTRON, Cambridge, UK. He performed his Ph.D. thesis from 2009 till 2014 in the Microelectronics Department of the Delft University of Technology on the low-temperature high-density growth of carbon nanotubes for application as vertical interconnects in 3D monolithic integrated circuits. After obtaining his Ph.D., he held a Post-doc position on the wafer-scale integration of graphene for sensing applications together with the faculty of Mechanical Engineering and several industrial partners. During this research, he developed a transfer-free wafer-scale CVD graphene process. Currently, he is an assistant professor in the Laboratory of Electronic Components, Technology and Materials of the Delft University of Technology where his research focusses on the integration of emerging electronic materials into semiconductor technology. His current research interests are (carbon-based) nanomaterials, 3D monolithic integration, wide-bandgap semiconductors, and environmental sensors.
