General Manager

Ronald Broeke received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, on the design, fabrication and characterization of photonics integrated circuits (PIC) for WDM networks. He continued his research at the University of California at Davis on applications like optical cdma and arbitrary waveform generation. This was followed by several years at ASML, engaging in hands-on project management and business intelligence systems. He decided to combine his experiences and founded Bright Photonics B.V. - a PIC design house - to join photonics as the key enabling technology for innovation in this decade. In this light, he takes part in the main European projects that lay the foundation for the foundry model for photonic ICs, such has EuroPIC and PARADIGM, and photonics in data centers, PHOXTROT.
