BECC guest researcher: Professor Adam Hitchcock

Lawrence, Hitchcock et al 2003

Professor Adam Hitchcock is one of the most renown and experienced researchers in x-ray adsorption microscopy and especially soft X-ray transmission microscopy (STXM). He has been a full professor at the department of Chemistry at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario since 1989.  A major part of his work is the development of new experimental techniques based on X-ray absorption phenomena and their subsequent application to a wide variety of chemical, physical and environmental problems. Possible questions to address are e.g. carbon compounds in soils, or microbial redox processes during decomposition. He is staying in Lund for two months to support the Softimax beamline in its startup phase, educate advanced and potential synchrotron users in STXM and ptychography during seminars, workshops and personal consultations, and to help developing methodologies, instrumentation, data and data treatment approaches.
