Biography

Since 2018 Cristian Svetina is a beamline scientist at FURKA experimental station at Athos-SwissFEL. He got his Bachelor Degree in physics and his Master Degree in Astrophysics from Università degli Studi di Trieste. His PhD in Nanotechnology (Graduate School of Nanotechnology, Università degli Studi di Trieste), was focused on designing new experimental instrumentation for the Free Electron Laser (FEL) FERMI in Trieste. He was scientist at FERMI FEL from 2007 to 2016 and between 2017 and 2018 joined the Bernina team as a post-doc.

Institutional Responsibilities

Cristian Svetina is responsible for the design and installation of the upcoming experimental station Furka (LAP) at the soft X-ray beamline Athos at SwissFEL.

Scientific Research

His research is currently focused on several cutting edge topics in condensed matter and FEL science. Ultra-fast dynamics studies and control of strongly correlated systems and hetero-structures studied by resonance elastic and inelastic X-ray scattering (REXS-RIXS) with Free Electron Lasers (FELs) is one of the main interests at Furka experimental station. In parallel, development of Nonlinear X-ray spectroscopy techniques at FELs is an important topic which is under development. Finally, the design of new instrumentation for extending the scientific capabilities of SwissFEL is an important part of his research.
