Part-time Professor

Arthur Weeber was born in 1959 in Velsen, the Netherlands. In 1983 he finished his Masters in Physics at the University of Amsterdam in the field of solid-state physics. In 1987 he completed his Masters in Chemical Engineering at the same university with specialization anaerobic waste water treatments. After receiving his PhD in 1988 in Physics (topic amorphous alloys), also at the University of Amsterdam, he joined the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands ECN as a solid-state physicist with research topic positron annihilation. Since 1992 he is doing R&D on crystalline silicon PV technology and coordinated large national and internal projects with both academic partners and industry ones. After several years of being a senior manager at ECN he became senior scientist at the Solar Energy department in 2015. In the same year he started as part-time professor (0.2 fte) at Delft University of Technology in the Photovoltaic Materials and Devices group (department Electrical Sustainable Energy, faculty Electrical Engineering Mathematics. He also is lecturer Solar Energy within the EUREC Master Renewable Energy at the Hanze University of Applied Science.
