2016 Innovation Award on Synchrotron Radiation
The 2016 Innovation Award on Synchrotron Radiation was bestowed to Dr. Christian Tusche from Forschungszentrum Jülich. The efficiency of spin-resolved electron spectroscopy can be increased by up to four orders of magnitude as a result of his pioneering paper “Imaging Spin-Filters for Spin-Resolving Momentum Microscopy” that substantially resulted from work done at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Halle/Saale, and BESSY II.
The Innovation Prize for Synchrotron Radiation is sponsored by the firms SPECS GmbH and BESTEC GmbH. The encomium at the awards ceremony December 8th, 2016 was delivered by Prof. Gerd Schönhense from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, who had received the Innovation Prize for Synchrotron Radiation as a result of work on a related subject in 2004.
