Helko E. van den Brom (M’14–SM’15) was born in Utrecht, the Netherlands, in 1971. He received the M.Sc. degree in theoretical solid-state physics from Utrecht University in 1995, and the Ph.D. degree in experimental solid-state physics from Leiden University, the Netherlands, in 2000.
In 2000, he joined the Dutch national metrology institute VSL in Delft, the Netherlands, where he started working on the development of Josephson and SET based electrical quantum standards. At present, as a principle scientist his current research interests are in power quality, conducted EMI, high-current transducers, sampling systems, and AC Josephson voltage standards.
Dr. Van den Brom is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), member of the IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Society and the IEEE Power & Energy Society, member of the Dutch Physical Society (NNV), technical assessor for the Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA), delegate of the Netherlands for the Consultative Committee for Electricity and Magnetism (CCEM) of the International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM), and contact person for VSL in the technical committee of electricity and magnetism (TCEM) and the TCEM subcommittee of DC and quantum electrical measurements of the European Association of National Metrology Institutes (EURAMET). He was a recipient of the best Ph.D. paper award of the Dutch Journal of Physics (NTvN) in 2000.
