Dr Chris Ryan

CSIRO, Melbourne

Chris is a physicist focussed on developing next generation microanalysis capabilities using proton and X-ray microbeams primarily for geoscience applications through the Mineral Resources division of CSIRO. He designed and built the CSIRO Nuclear Microprobe beamline and quadrupole quintuplet lens system, developed techniques and software for trace element real-time imaging, such as widely used in the GeoPIXE fluorescence imaging software, and initiated international collaborative efforts driving the CSIRO-BNL Maia advanced spectroscopy and imaging detector developments, their application at synchrotron and ion-beam laboratories and the Maia Mapper high definition laboratory XRF mapping system.
