Professor at the Delft University of Technology, the
Netherlands and CEO of Harvest Imaging, Belgium.
Dr. Theuwissen received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering
from the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium.
In the ESAT laboratory he focused on semiconductor technology for
linear CCD image sensors. From 1983 till 2002 he was involved in
research in the field of solid-state image sensing, SDTV- and
HDTV-imagers, CCD as well as CMOS solid-state image activities at
Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. In
2001 Dr. Albert Theuwissen joined the Delft University of
Technology as part-time professor and in 2002 he joined DALSA Corp.
to act first as the company's Chief Technology Officer and later as
the Chief Scientist of DALSA Semiconductors.
In 2007 Dr. Theuwissen founded Harvest Imaging and since then he
is fully focusing on training, coaching and consulting in the field
of solid-state imaging technology.
Dr. Theuwissen is the author or co-author of many technical
papers in the solid-state imaging field, has issued several
patents, authored a textbook "Solid-State Imaging with
Charge-Coupled Devices" in 1995, and been appointed an IEEE
distinguished lecturer. He is the founder of the Walter Kosonocky
Award, which highlights the best technical paper in the field of
solid-state image sensors. He was general chair of the
International Image Sensor Workshop in 1997, 2003 and 2009. Since
1998 he has served as a member of the Technical Program Committee
of ISSCC, and in 2010 he was Chair of the International Technical
Program Committee of ISSCC. Dr. Theuwissen is a member of the
editorial board of the magazine "Photonics Spectra", an IEEE
Fellow, and a member of SPIE. In 2008 he also received the Fuji
Gold Medal for his research, development and education work in the
field of solid-state imaging. Furthermore, Dr Theuwissen was
elected Electronic Imaging Scientist 2011 at the Electronic Imaging
conference held in San Francisco, USA. In 2013 he received the
Exceptional Service Award of IISS and in 2014 the SEMI Award.
Dr. Theuwissen has been a member of the CEI-Europe Faculty since
