MEMS²market is pronounced as "MEMS to Market". The name represents the core intent of supporting clients in bringing their innovative MEMS products successfully to the market.
Jan H. Kuypers (M’05) received the Dipl.- Ing. degree from the Department of Microsystem Technology IMTEK at the University of Freiburg, Germany, in 2004, and the Ph.D. degree in Nanomechanics from Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, in 2007.
After working as research specialist at the Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center (BSAC) at the University of California at Berkeley, he joined Sand 9, a Boston based start-up company developing innovative MEMS timing solutions in 2008. In 2014, after advancing to Director of MEMS Engineering, and Chief Science Officer, he continued his support of Sand 9 as advisor while joining TriQuint Semiconductor (now Qorvo). Dr. Kuypers was responsible for the R&D of Surface Acoustic Wave devices for mobility solutions with teams in the US and Germany.
In early 2018 Dr. Kuypers joined an early stage MEMS LiDAR startup in Munich, Blickfeld GmbH, where he built up the MEMS group and demonstrated micro mirrors with large mirror area and scan angle. These devices are now commercially available as Cube LiDAR unit. In June 2021, Dr. Kuypers started MEMS²market and continues his passion in MEMS technology by supporting selected clients with their innovative products.
