|Description:|| After 43 years, our colleague Anne Koster will leave ASTRON and start a well-deserved retirement. Although Anne is not broadly known outside ASTRON, his work has involved almost all electronic projects that have passed through the electronic laboratory in 4 decades. Whatever design came off the design table, Anne was able to assemble it with high quality, even as the components became smaller over the years and are barely visible now.|
Anne started back in 1974 as an electronic technician and over the years he participated in many projects including 2 upgrades of the WSRT MFFE/IVC systems in the 90's, and APERTIF more recently. Also unique in Anne's career is that he worked on 3 world-class radio telescopes, Dwingeloo, WSRT and LOFAR.
The pictures show Anne together with colleagues Paul Riemers, Yde Koopman, Sjouke Zwier, Rob Millenaar and Nico Schonewille in the 80's lab, and a recent picture where Anne is teaching a Vapour Phase soldering machine how to make a proper high quality soldering joint.
