Vincent De Andrade
Associate Scientist, Photon Division
Vincent De Andrade joined the Photon Division within the Photon Sciences Directorate in 2010 to help develop the submicron resolution x-ray spectroscopy beamline (SRX) at the National Synchrotron Light Source II.
His scientific specialties include:
- Full-field µspectroscopy setup development
- High precision optics for synchrotron beamlines
Earth sciences and metamorphism
- Deciphering of information recorded in rocks bearing minerals to retrace the pressure-temperature history of single rocks from which are derived geodynamic models
- Speciation of minerals
- Mineralogical orientations with polarization contrast imaging
Before coming to Photon Sciences in 2010, De Andrade did a postdoc at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, working at the ID21 spectroscopy beamline. He also taught at the Joseph Fourier University in France.
