X-ray Optics & Microscopy
at Stony Brook (2009)
and Argonne/Northwestern (2010)


End of an Era at Stony Brook!




How many people does it take to run an x-ray microscope? Only one, but four of us posed for this picture.

Welcome to the x-ray optics and microscopy group at Stony Brook. We use coherent soft x-rays for optics experiments. The main fields we work in are

Scanning Transmission X-ray Microscopy

and

Diffraction Microscopy

Much of our effort is directed towards using Fresnel zone plates to produce one of the smallest focused spots of electromagnetic waves of any wavelength, and exploiting these nanofocused beams for studies of biological and environmental science specimens.
