cSAXS – X12SA: Coherent Small-Angle X-ray Scattering

Access to cSAXS is granted through the biannual call for proposals.

The Coherent X-ray Scattering group is hiring! We are looking for candidates for a postdoc position in the fields coherent diffractive imaging, ptychography and tomography. For details, follow the link or contact Andreas Menzel (+41 56 310 3711).

Experiment types

Experiments performed at cSAXS include, inter alia,
