Martin Fuchs


Dr. Martin Fuchs joined Brookhaven in March, 2013 as a Biophysicist. He is the Lead Beamline Scientist of the Frontier Microfocusing Macromolecular Crystallography Beamline (FMX) at the National Synchrotron Light Source II.

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 Universit├Ąt Berlin, and successfully defended his doctoral thesis on "A High-Field/High-Frequency Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectrometer (360 GHz/14T)"
