Winner of the CSIRO Alumni Scholarship in Physics 2022

January 24th, 2022

We are thrilled to announce the 2022 winner of the CSIRO Alumni Scholarship in Physics.

Trey Guest from La Trobe University

Trey’s project is a collaboration between the La Trobe University and the European XFEL, and aims to leverage Australian expertise in x-ray physics to develop suitable phase-retrieval methods for application at the European XFEL. Thereby improving both current understandings of the fundamental FEL process, as well as identifying the contributions of both electron and photon beam sources to the varying, observed photon pulses.
Trey intends to travel to the Hamburg metropolitan region of Germany to implement wavefront sensing schemes designed using wavefront simulations he has performed, as well as preliminary experiments undertaken at the Imaging and Medical Beamline (IMBL) at the Australian Synchrotron.
These studies are directly applicable to applications at the Australian Synchrotron, including but not limited to the development and extension of pre-existing beamlines, as well as improved imaging outcomes in coherent diffractive imaging type experiments.
