Dr. Martin Fuchs joined Brookhaven on March 4, 2013 as a Biophysicist working on the FMX and AMX Beamlines for Macromolecular Crystallography at the National Synchrotron Light Source II in the group of Dr. Dieter Schneider.
Prior to joining the Laboratory, Dr. Fuchs held the position of Beamline Scientist in the Macromolecular Crystallography group on the X10SA Beamline at the Swiss Light Source.
Dr. Fuchs holds a PhD in Physics from Freie Universität Berlin, and successfully defended his doctoral thesis on "A High-Field/High-Frequency Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectrometer (360 GHz/14T)"
Martin is part of a group of scientific and engineering staff that designs and builds a pair of state-of-the-art macromolecular crystallography beamlines and its associated scientific programs. His main responsibilities include interacting with the scientific user community to define the mission and technical scope of the beamlines, and supporting all aspects of the beamline design, construction, commissioning, and operations.
