X-ray Fluorescence Imaging of ancient materials – From Archimedes to Archaeopteryx and Beyond
Speaker: UWE BERGMANN, Stanford PULSE Institute, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Uwe Bergmann got his PhD in Physics from Stony Brook University and is a Distinguished Staff Scientist at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Principle Investigator at the Stanford PULSE Institute. His research activities focus on the development and application of novel synchrotron, X-ray laser and ultrafast electron techniques. His scientific interests include studies of the structure of water and aqueous solution, active centers in metalloproteins in particular the photosynthetic splitting of water, hydrocarbons and fossil fuels, functional 2D materials, and imaging of ancient documents and fossils.
